Integrating Diversity and Inclusion into MSU Denver
Metropolitan State University of Denver’s commitment to bolstering diversity is proactive and balanced. The University supports and values diversity in all forms in a teaching and learning community marked by mutual respect, inclusion, and cooperation. Diversity is reflected in the curriculum, in activities of the University, and in the composition of faculty, staff, and students. MSU Denver embraces the diversity and inclusion of all people regardless of their identity. These identities include, but are not limited to, ability, age, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, immigration status, intellectual differences, national origin, race, religion, sex, and sexual orientation.
MSU Denver’s diversity and inclusion work is informed by the theory of Inclusive Excellence. The four main components of Inclusive Excellence and Leadership are access and equity; diversity in the formal and informal curriculum; campus climate; and student learning and development.
