Addressing Campus Climate and Advancing Diversity

Ongoing conversation is important for improving campus climate and advancing diversity at MSU. While these discussions are sometimes difficult, they are part of the dialogue necessary to ensure a vibrant, intellectual community that includes and respects a broad range of ideas and perspectives.

To promote an ongoing conversation, MSU leadership meets with student groups and leaders around the issues of race, diversity, and inclusion on our campus. Following are communications and information shared with students.
