Academic Diversity Partners
Academic Diversity Partners (ADPs) are faculty members or other academic leaders within each college who act as liaisons between university diversity and inclusion efforts and their college. ADPs are accountable to both their Dean and the Senior Diversity and Inclusion Officer, providing an opportunity to forge connections amongst programs, align existing diversity efforts with MSU’s strategic diversity goals, and examine potential gaps in offerings. They are responsible for coordinating diversity and inclusion initiatives, tracking progress and participation, communicating priorities and initiatives, and supporting the adoption of inclusive practices within their colleges. ADPs are also instrumental in informing university-wide practices to advance our strategic diversity goals.
Academic Diversity Partners are selected by Deans of the respective colleges and they serve two-year terms.
