  • The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) educates and supports students from all cultures. ODI believes in holistic education by empowering the MSUM community to challenge the status quo, dialogue in courageous conversations, and inspire the best from themselves and others with "grit, humility, and heart."

    ODI offers numerous scholarship opportunities to help students fund their education. Check out our Scholarships page to learn more and fill out the 2017 Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship Application or the 2017 AOS Scholars Program Application.
