MSU Denver has been committed to diversity since our beginning. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion brings together faculty, staff, and students from across the university to advance our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Diversity Equity and Inclusion Council (DEIC) is charged with examining diversity, inclusion, and equity issues at MSU Denver with respect to policy and practice from multiple perspectives and across different functionalities; including access, recruitment and retention, community mending, and outreach to diverse constituents internally and externally, and campus climate and institutional culture.
The DEIC works collaboratively with MSU Denver campus constituents, broader community members, and additional stakeholders, as appropriate, to engage strategic and action-oriented conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Part of DEIC’s role will be to help develop and implement the institution’s Diversity Strategic Plan, which will serve as a vehicle to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion at MSU Denver. DEIC will review existing efforts aimed at enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in representation and practice, develop goals and objectives, consider approaches that will further diversity, equity, and inclusion as a pillar under the university’s strategic plan, and eventually make recommendations toward action.
