LGBTQ+ Community

LGBTQ+ students and allies at Tuck are instrumental in creating an MBA experience and community that educates, supports, and is authentic to their truths.

LGBTQ+ community members and allies are committed to supporting each other and co-creating their Tuck experiences as they design and deliver unique opportunities to learn, lead, and be led by difference.



The Tuck School is committed to building a more inclusive world of business. Everyone at Tuck honors diversity in all its forms to ensure Tuck is a place for all students to develop leadership skills in a space where community, visibility, allyship, and professional growth are priorities. We aim to foster a culture and environment where all members feel included and have the support to thrive. It’s this environment of inclusivity that allows students to bring their authentic selves to Tuck every day.

"As a queer black woman, I had apprehensions about my ability to fit in if I was going to be living in the middle of nowhere in New England. DivCo gave me the opportunity to see people that looked like me thriving in Hanover, NH."
