The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion creates and maintains an accessible, inclusive and supportive community for all who learn, work and teach in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, MSU Extension and AgBioResearch.

The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) aims to foster a culture where every member of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) feels valued and inspired to achieve individual and common goals.

We have the opportunity as faculty, staff and students to celebrate differences and work together to further integrate diversity, equity and inclusion into our culture so it becomes who we are and what we do every day.
