The Division for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DDEI) is focused on highlighting and educating about the value in our similarities as well as our differences. Our goal is to help move our University community to a society that recognizes, values, and empowers people from all walks of life, creeds, and disciplines. The Office of Human Resources also shares these values and goals. To this end, MSU needs your help to fulfill its commitment to recruiting and retaining the broadest array of faculty, staff and students possible. “Inclusive excellence” is not simply a catchphrase, but a call to action. It is a reminder that together we can build a MSU family as well as a world representative of all people.
We encourage you to join an Employee Resource Group (ERG) otherwise known as an affinity group. These growing circles of professionals and friends who share traits in common provide support to you in your efforts to join in and become a part of the university culture and create a vibrant lifestyle within the city of Springfield.
