Diversity Committee

UMSI is committed to building an equitable and inclusive community, making the school a welcoming and open space to everyone. The primary goal of the UMSI Diversity Committee, this year specifically focusing on international inclusion, is to help achieve these goals.

Please contact the UMSI Diversity Committee at umsi.diversity.comm@umich.edu with any questions or concerns. We also invite you to contact us to share your stories, experiences, suggestions, events, and anything else related to diversity at UMSI.
