Conference Details

The 2021 DivCo will take place from Friday, October 1 to Sunday, October 3.


October 1 - 3, 2021

Trailblazers like Herb Kemp T’66, the first African American to graduate from Tuck, and Pamela Scott T’75, the first African American woman to graduate from Tuck, helped pave the way for future Tuck students and leaders.  In our 27th annual Tuck Diversity Conference, join students, alumni, faculty, staff, executives and attendees from all over the world as we celebrate our diverse stories. 

Tuck draws students from all walks of life. Our goal is to create a community in which diversity is accepted and celebrated. For us, diversity means encouraging and including each person's ideas, perspectives, and life experiences. Please join us for the 27th annual Tuck Diversity Conference on October 1-3, 2021.  This student run event joins students, alumni, faculty, staff, executives, and attendees from all over the world for discussions, networking, and mentoring. In addition, you'll learn more about our MBA program, the admissions process, and what makes our community unique.

This year, we are excited to share that the Tuck Diversity Conference will be held in person and virtually; our hope is that this hybrid model allows participants to engage with the conference and Tuck in the way that they are most comfortable. Please see our FAQ section for more information.
