Diversity, equity, inclusion and respect have remained at the core of Metropolitan State University of Denver since its inception. We are proud to welcome all students and to champion personal and academic development, respectful discourse and the exchange of ideas. In that spirit, the CARE Team, Center for Multicultural Engagement and Inclusion and Center for Equity and Student Achievement have been working diligently and exploring all campus buildings to identify accessible, designated spaces where students, faculty, staff and community members can pray, reflect, meditate, or otherwise practice their faith. Please also note that prayer, reflection, and meditation are not limited to these spaces, and Roadrunners are welcome to practice their faith traditions where they feel comfortable.
To find reflection, prayer, meditation spaces near you on campus, please visit the Campus Map and click the Inclusivity Resources tab. There, you can also find lactation and wellness rooms as well as gender-inclusive restrooms. MSU Denver will continue to work alongside the Auraria Higher Education Center and other campus partners to identify additional spaces throughout the semester. Students seeking additional resources can contact the MSU Denver CARE Team or the Center for Equity and Student Achievement.
Land Acknowledgment from MSU Denver
MSU Denver acknowledges the indigenous people and land of Auraria and the broader Denver area.
As we gather here today, we honor and acknowledge that we are on the traditional territories and ancestral homelands of the Cheyenne and Arapahoe Nations. This area was also the site of trade, hunting, gathering, and healing for many other Native Nations: The Lakota, Ute, Kiowa, Comanche, Apache, Shoshone, and others.
We recognize the Indigenous peoples as the original stewards of the land, water, the plants, and animals who called this place home. As these words of acknowledgment are spoken and heard, the ties that these nations have to their traditional homelands are renewed and reaffirmed. Let us also acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory. We respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we gather. We pay our respect to them and give thanks to all Tribal Nations and the ancestors of this place.
We also want to recognize the community and families of Auraria displaced by the creation of this campus for MSU Denver to have a place that we now call home.
