Our Mission

Welcome to Out for Business (OFB) at Ross, the official lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ+) student association at the University of Michigan’s Stephen M. Ross School of Business.

Our mission is based off our three pillars:


We seek to build a strong, diverse community of LGBTQ+ and ally students at Ross where all are welcomed, celebrated, and valued


We aim to provide a comprehensive set of professional development resources to support the career interests of OFB members.


We work to raise awareness among Ross faculty, staff and students of the issues, experiences, and intersectional identities among LGBTQ+ individuals in the workplace and in society.

We work to achieve our mission by providing professional and social networking opportunities for LGBTQ+ students at Ross while also raising awareness of LGBTQ+ workplace issues within the Ross community. We develop and maintain relationships with faculty, staff, alumni and corporations to help us achieve these goals.
