Michigan State released its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, or DEI, report for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 academic years on Tuesday.

“This is the first time the annual report includes a narrative portion that highlights contributions from the campus community,” Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer Jabbar R. Bennett said in an email sent on Tuesday. “While the report is only meant to be a window into MSU’s DEI efforts, it is a tribute to the dedication of many, outlining the work ahead and how it can lift all.”
