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.
