Task Force and Committees
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee (DEIC)
In response to requests in the BIPOC Action Plan, ASMSU collaborated with students
and community leaders to establish a Diversity Equity and Inclusion Committee as an
official ASMSU advisory committee which will conduct monthly meetings and open forums
during Spring and Fall Semesters. Members of the committee will discuss items from
the MSU Diversity Council’s upcoming agenda to provide student perspectives and advice
on policy, programming, and services. This committee will gather student feedback,
provide opportunities for students to discuss and problem solve, provide outreach
on DEI initiatives and services, and collaborate with ASMSU and OSE programs to design,
facilitate, and evaluate ASMSU and OSE programs and activities with a DEI lens.
The DEIC will meet monthly, beginning in September 2021. More information about meeting schedules will be available when the 2021-2022 academic year begins.
