The TCU Neeley School of Business is committed to fostering an inclusive, scholarly community composed of individuals who, through their diverse and sometimes competing perspectives, contribute to a free and intellectually challenging culture where students, faculty, staff and alumni have equitable opportunities and can forge paths toward personal and professional growth.
TCU ACAP is a free, one-week, on-campus summer program for high school students from underrepresented groups to learn more about degrees and careers in accounting and finance. We partner with NABA Inc. to bring the Accelerated Career Awareness Program to Fort Worth on the TCU campus to bridge the opportunity gap for minority high school students. Students stay in dorms and attend classes on careers in accounting and business, personal development and college preparation.
Two of our entrepreneurship professors provide this need-based scholarship for entrepreneurial-minded TCU students not majoring in business and/or who are minoring in entrepreneurship. Priority is given to first-generation college students and/or students who have demonstrated experience in or commitment to working with historically underserved or marginalized populations.
Cultural Competency Skills Development
As the first of its kind at TCU Neeley, this speaker series provides a platform for sharing candid, diverse career insight aimed at equipping our students as confident leaders ready to meet and overcome obstacles in the evolving global workforce; and broadening the perspectives of our university and extended community.
In this undergraduate course, you’ll learn to effectively understand and negotiate the multiple dynamics that emerge from difference, and to appropriately respond to issues of marginalization and social injustice in the workplace. You’ll engage in difficult conversations as you study cases that stimulate your awareness of real-world issues, to develop the skills you need to mediate or resolve diversity issues as a future professional.
All Neeley students, faculty and staff are invited to participate. Over four weeks we will read and discuss a book designed to foster understanding and belonging across differences.
Women's Initiatives and Programs
We bring influential women to the TCU campus to share their insights into success through Women to the Power of 10 and Graduate Women Alumnae Community events.
The annual Greater Fort Worth Women in Leadership Symposium, hosted by the Texas Diversity Council and sponsored by the TCU Neeley School of Business, brings together a diverse group of successful women leaders to share their personal and professional career challenges. Meet and hear tips from some of the most accomplished women executives in the DFW Metroplex.
Mentoring and Career Development
Our 10-week mentoring program connects historically underrepresented students with professional and peer leaders in the TCU Neeley community. Undergraduate students are matched with mentors to help guide their leadership and career development.
