Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are integral to our practice as communicators, storytellers, and innovators. We believe our responsibility is to foster an open and welcoming environment that aspires to attract, recruit, and sustain diverse students, faculty, and staff. Diversity is among the main drivers of institutional excellence, and we are proud to embrace and promote broad communities of knowledge, backgrounds, and experiences. Our efforts to advance DEI are guided by a shared vision grounded in a culture of caring, belonging, transparency, and accountability. 

In alignment with the University’s DEI Report and Plan, we commit to actively challenging, disrupting, and dismantling systems that reinforce and maintain historical and contemporary social inequalities. We are dedicated to ongoing dialogue to strengthen our commitment to social justice, advocacy, and activism. We strive to be DEI thought leaders who inspire, influence and cultivate progress in our College and throughout the MSU community.
