In the Office for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives (I3) efforts are strategically made to connect its ideas and practices regarding diversity and inclusion to similar efforts within colleges, units, organizations, groups, specific audiences and the general community at-large. Office for Inclusion does this in a variety of ways:
- Partnering with members of the campus and off-campus communities to continuously communicate and spread the message that inclusion is one of MSU's core values.
- Providing a range of opportunities for students, faculty, staff and the broader communities to come together to celebrate diversity and experience its rich influence as we connect and learn from each another.
- Supporting community-wide efforts to infuse the value of diversity and encourage the practice of inclusion within the communities that MSU serves.
- Acknowledging efforts made within the campus community that express diversity and inclusion which can serve to inspire similar efforts by others.
Office for Inclusion's purpose for building community relationships and aligning its efforts to MSU's core values is to enhance our quality of life, increase our awareness and emphasize the importance of our commitment to equity and social justice in our community.
