Black lives matter.  

Hate, racism, anti-Blackness, and white supremacy harm individuals and communities.

Our team is committed to building an inclusive environment at MSU and supporting genuine change that meets the needs of our campus and world. We stand in solidarity with the message shared by MSU President Stanley and Interim Provost Sullivan.

The modern-day practice of student conduct and its commitment to fair and equitable due process was born during the American Civil Rights movement in the 1960s (Dixon v. Alabama State Board of Education, 1961). Advancing that value, we are here to support our MSU community in advocating for equitable processes, engaging in educational dialogues, and encouraging conflict resolution.

Our priority is the health and wellness of our community, both on and off-campus.
