College of Hospitality, Retail and Sport Management

Diversity and Inclusion

Strengthening the college’s culture of consciousness serves as the foundation for advancing diversity and inclusion programs, practices, policies and partnerships that enhance our learning and working environment for all. These initiatives include leadership development and representation, mentorship, recruitment of minority students and employees, and scholarships that improve access to enrichment opportunities.

The college's diversity and inclusion efforts support a broad range of underrepresented individuals, including people from different racial, ethnic and gender minorities, people with disabilities, the LGBTQ community, and students from different socioeconomic backgrounds. 

Diversity and inclusion are integral parts of UofSC's vision and priorities, as outlined by President Caslen's Strategic Priority No. 4: Increase Diversity for South Carolina: A Path to Excellence, and the Carolina Creed.

Below are  some of the resources and information from the university and college, and more will be added as we expand our efforts.
