MSU Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion 

Montana State University Diversity and Inclusion Framework

The current MSU Diversity Framework builds on a foundation of institutional values and accomplishments established over many years through the work of students, faculty and staff committed to broadening and strengthening diversity.

Has the above framework integrated throughout? Learn more about how these values are being conceptualized in our overall campus community and goals. 

Indian Education For All (IEFA) in Montana

We ask that all of our faculty and staff complete this course. This course is just one part of an overall effort to ensure that every member of our Montana University System (MUS) team is engaged in conversations around the Montana Constitutional mandate that "every Montanan, whether Indian or non-Indian, be encouraged to learn about the distinct and unique heritage of American Indians in a culturally responsive manner."  

Resources for Developing Knowledge 

Diversity & Inclusion Development Certificate

The Diversity & Inclusion Development program trains students, staff, and faculty to expand their awareness, knowledge, and skills related to diversity and inclusion to promote personal and professional growth.  

Safe Zone Training

Are you interested in learning more about LGBTQ issues and potentially becoming part of an ally network for LGBTQ students at MSU? The Safe Zone program offers training each semester to help educate our community and promote an inclusive campus environment. 

Diversity and Inclusion Student Commons

The Diversity and Inclusion Student Commons promotes inclusion and understanding of difference, supports students from underrepresented identity groups and encourages critical thinking about diversity topics. 

Leadership Learning from COVID-19 and Racial Injustice

In response to the current times, the MSU Leadership Institute has created a one-stop, virtual resource guide for MSU community members seeking to cultivate leadership skills and mobilize positive change.
