Welcome to the Diversity and Inclusion Student Commons! 

A commons is a place - physical or intellectual - where culture, space, and community converge. The nameStudent Commons reflects MSU's commitment to inclusion, aligns with the diversity and inclusion framework, and represents the collective and collaborative way the university addresses inclusion. 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.

The mission of the MSU DISC is to increase understanding, promote inclusion, and inspire critical thinking about diversity, as well as to provide support for those who identify with a wide range of diverse identity groups.  

Student staff are available for walk-in consultations and inquiries during the following weekly times in our student DISC space on the first floor of the SUB, room 185. Our Program Manager is available weekdays from 8:00a to 5:00p in SUB 286. Fall 2022 staffing hours will be updated in the near future.
