THE WHARTON WAY
Hear from Wharton’s Dean, Erika H. James, on why we are initiating collaboration across disciplines, divides, and beyond.
Throughout our 140+ year legacy of success, Wharton has pursued outcomes where the sum can be greater than its parts.

Collaborating across disciplines and divides means serving as the primary convener of thought leaders to share perspectives, tackle challenges, and produce solutions that benefit us all.

How the School-Sponsored Tenure Project Carves Paths to Equity in Academia
Founded by the duo, Wharton Prof. Wendy De La Rosa, W’11, and Foster School of Business Prof. Esther Uduehi, GrW’21, the Tenure Project offers a supportive environment where junior faculty are welcomed and engaged in programs, events, and dialogues that address the important issues affecting Black, Latinx, and Native junior faculty obtaining tenure in US business schools.
"Whether we’re engaging in technological, medical, or societal problems, business has a role in society, and partnering across the different academic disciplines is an important way to demonstrate that. By engaging in collaboration, and thinking about academic possibilities that are coming together through different domains, we can really ensure that the next generation is gaining a unique perspective through multiple lenses."
