Complete Immersion in Management (CIM) is a weeklong orientation program that introduces incoming students to the rigors and culture of Kellogg. A cornerstone of the Kellogg experience, CIM offers challenges and events that test new students’ skill sets while introducing them to their new community. CIM is organized by the CIM Exec team, which is composed of second-year students, plus 40 of their peers who serve as section leaders or volunteers.

From May 2-6, Pride@Kellogg (P@K) hosted the second annual LGBT Ally Week with the aim of celebrating diversity and raising awareness of LGBT issues and rights. The week featured 10 different social and speaker events targeting different members of the Kellogg audience, with topics ranging from LGBT individuals in sports to tips for being a better Ally in the workplace.
Throughout the course of the week, more than 230 people attended six speaker events. There was also a solid showing for two social events and a series of small group dinner discussions focused on relevant topics. The week culminated with LGBT Preview Day, which invited prospective students from across the country to experience a day in the life of a Kellogg student.
