What is KODI?
If you don't know much about KODI, that's okay, many Kelley students aren't quite sure what we do or who we support. Simply put, we support all students in the Kelley Undergraduate Program.
Our mission is to recruit, retain, advise, and support historically underrepresented undergraduate students, including students who identify as African American, Latino/Hispanic, American Indian/Native American, or Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander.

Many of our white allies want to support the ongoing movement of Black and Brown liberation, but they may feel unsure of how to become an effective ally. This conversation with Melinda Epler, CEO of Change Catalyst, is a great place to start. Melinda, who works with the tech industry to solve diversity and inclusion issues, shares her thoughts on allyship and leading with empathy during the coronavirus pandemic.Watch now
