The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion in its classrooms, academic networks and workplaces.
The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion developed some novel coronavirus (COVID-19) communication tips to share with the MSU community to help foster understanding and inclusion.
Some external resources include:
- Diversity Style Guide for articles and communications
- Glossary of Terms: MSU Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay and Transgender Resource Center
- MyPronouns.org: What are personal pronouns and why do they matter?
