Diversity and Inclusion

Listening and Healing:
Exploring and Celebrating Diversity.


The MSU College of Music is committed to heightening awareness of social and cultural issues that affect our learning environment. Working groups led by students, staff and faculty have devised strategies for listening and learning sessions that are designed to build upon MSU’s overarching vision of a diverse and inclusive university.

Sessions for “Listening & Healing” provide a welcoming and supportive environment that values and seeks to advance the interests of all individuals. Student, faculty, and staff participation will help foster collective responsibility towards supporting an academic environment that is civil, that respects differences, and is a place where everyone feels they belong. Information and input gathered from learning sessions, also known as “Climate Surveys,” will help inform ongoing work of committees at the College of Music and the MSU Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Iniatives
