Diversity, inclusion and belonging

Building inclusive communities

Together we are working to create a truly inclusive and welcoming environment at MSU that embraces, celebrates and uses our unique differences to build a stronger community of Spartans. With students from all 50 states and 140+ countries, diversity is what we are, and inclusion is what we do.

It's hard to succeed if you don't feel that you belong and are valued for who you are. Building and sustaining inclusive communities is a work in progress and we believe that there is always room for improvement. As a Spartan, you will have the access, knowledge, opportunities and support to empower you at MSU and far into the future.
