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.
Culturally Inclusive College Reporting System
The MSU College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) is committed to a culturally inclusive, safe and supportive environment that is free from any and all forms of discrimination, bias, stereotyping, harassment and assault. (See more in the CANR DEI Statement.)
At this time, the CIC Sharing System is closed for review and revision to better serve and meet the needs of the CANR community. We hope to move through this process swiftly but want to be sure we do it right and in a way that is effective for the user. We will be sure to announce when revisions are complete and the form reopens. Thank you for your patience.
The Culturally Inclusive College (CIC) Sharing System was developed to allow CANR to track and respond to behaviors and situations that work in favor or against our goals of a safe and supportive environment.
