Montana State University strives to create a welcoming learning environment that educates and empowers all students for success,  inside and outside of the classroom. MSU fosters an inclusive campus through dynamic partnerships, celebrating cultural differences, promoting dialogue and providing community spaces.

Diversity Ambassadors are student volunteers within Montana State University’s Office of Admissions that provide guidance and insight for prospective students who are considering making MSU their next home. Diversity Ambassadors serve as a vital resource for underrepresented students throughout every stage of the admissions process.

Thinking of visiting campus? You can schedule to meet with a Diversity Ambassador during your campus visit here.

If you’d like to connect with one of MSU’s Diversity Ambassador, please email Admissions Counselor Erin Murdock at erinmurdock@montana.edu with the name of the Ambassador you’d like to contact.
