Launch of a new newsletter

The staff of Kelley's Office of Diversity Initiatives (KODI) published their first newsletter this week, with a focus on introducing their exciting work with three student organizations: Kelley School Diversity Council, National Association of Black Accountants, and Undergraduate Black MBA Association. While the staff provide support to current students at Kelley, they also do outreach and recruitment efforts with prospective students still in high school.

Over the past few months, the staff have been traveling throughout the state to meet with students via college fairs and workshops. The goal is to establish a relationship with students who might be interested in studying business in college, to let those students know Kelley might be a possibility in their future plans.

In addition, the application for the Junior Executive Institute, the office's summer program for high school students from historically underrepresented groups, will open on March 1. Information about the program has been sent to local high schools and to selected schools across the country. Interested students can also find more details online at
