Kenan-Flagler's collaborative culture values diversity and the variety of perspectives and talents it engenders. Students are expected to collaborate, provide mutual support, and demonstrate genuine interest in each other's success. Kenan-Flagler is deeply committed to increasing the number of MBAs from all ethnic and cultural groups. As part of this effort, Dean Robert S. Sullivan serves as chairman of the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, an alliance of 14 business schools working with Corporate America to increase the number of minorities in management.
Hispanic students can join the International Affairs Club, the Latin American Student Association, and the Alliance of Minority Students, which hosts the annual "Inside Kenan-Flagler," a weekend workshop for prospective minority students. The school also recruits at the annual NSHMBA conference. Recruiters also value Kenan-Flagler's diversity: Every Hispanic in the class of '01 who sought a job had an offer by graduation.
