Diversity Education Banner
Mississippi State University is a diverse community where every individual’s ideas, beliefs, and identities are appreciated, respected, and valued.
We reject prejudice and discrimination and strongly believe that an inclusive campus environment contributes to critical thinking, intellectual engagement, and growth. Our commitment to diversity is a responsibility shared by every member of the MSU community. We commit to creating an environment that fosters continuous improvement in our understanding and implementation of initiatives that promote diversity, access, and inclusion.

Fuel Your Funding Workshops

More grant funding agencies now require PIs to incorporate diversity, create recruitment plans for underrepresented students, address equity and inclusion, and write powerful Broader Impact statements. We fuel your great ideas by partnering with or extending our existing programs, offering research, writing, and assessment services for impact across all facets of research.
