Diversity Wheel
Johns Hopkins created this Diversity Wheel that represents internal dimensions that are usually most permanent or visible. The outside wheel represents dimensions that are acquired and change over the course of a lifetime.

One of the highest priorities for the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine is to attract, recruit and retain students, interns, residents, faculty, and staff who are representative of the diversity of the populations of our state, region, and country. The College embraces diversity.

The College's Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, in concert with the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, are working to create a roadmap for diversity to guide the College for the next five years. Funding from the Health Careers Opportunity Program grant has allowed the College to establish evidence-based practice to advance diversity and inclusion initiatives. Further, our current strategic initiative has identified diversity as a value. As such, we act purposefully to attract and retain talented students, faculty, and staff who reflect the diversity of the populations we serve. Our environment supports and nurtures all people as respected individuals.

We are committed to promoting the principles of equal opportunity and multiculturalism where all individuals are valued, respected, provided opportunity to flourish, and open doors in their pursuit of excellence. We encourage and welcome our community to share ideas with us surrounding issues of diversity and inclusion.
