Bringing Lessons on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion to Fairbanks

The National Millenial and Gen Z Community is a group of like-minded individuals who aim to break down stereotypes that revolve around Millenials and Gen Z young adults. Their goal is to elevate the conversation of younger generations with successful businesses across the country and the world exploring new ideas and finding solutions. As a proud member of NMGZ, the UAF Associated Students of Business student organization strives to bring those conversations and more to our local community.

Such is the case for the Johnson Scholarship Foundation (JSF). Leaders on the JSF team reached out to the College of Business and Security Management (CBSM) to learn more about and explore our programs.
