Data and Information: Diversity at MSU

Campus Climate

A campus climate that is positive and provides holistic support inside and outside of the classroom is of utmost importance for MSU, and requires intentional recruitment, retention and advancement efforts for historically underrepresented students and employees.

The last campus climate survey occured in 2016. While the assessment provides an in-depth purview of the past experiences of students and employees, MSU will work towards implementing ongoing surveys to regularly evaluate the efficacy of campus-wide diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.

Diversity at MSU Report

Each year, MSU compiles a report to capture the diversity at the university.

The Diversity at MSU Report provides an overview of the compositional diversity of MSU students, faculty and staff. The report is a compilation of data and brief descriptive narratives organized by race/ethnicity, gender and disability status among student and employee populations. In addition, data related to MSU’s supplier diversity efforts are included and show the annual spending with women-owned and minority-owned businesses. With a focus on data, the report does not represent the full scope of efforts Michigan State University undertakes to support the recruitment, retention, advancement and success of members of underrepresented groups.
