The vice president and chief diversity officer (CDO) will report directly to the president and work collaboratively with other university senior executives, deans, faculty, staff and students to develop and implement a comprehensive diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) plan.

This individual will also partner with the associate vice president for civil rights and Title IX education and compliance on compliance and investigations. The CDO will work closely with offices across MSU including but not limited to: academic affairs; student affairs; human resources; residential and hospitality services; financial aid; and admissions to elevate inclusiveness and implement best practices related to diversity, equity and inclusion in areas such as leadership; access, retention and advancement (faculty, staff, and students); research; curriculum; campus climate and community engagement.

Work in these areas will involve: designing and delivering education and training programs; coordinating grant programs to promote and enhance DEI on campus; coordinating scholarships for community-involved students; supporting and facilitating the success of unit-level DEI efforts, conducting and supporting research on DEI-related topics; monitoring faculty and staff recruitment and hiring practices; and organizing celebratory and recognition/awards programs. The CDO works with many local and regional community groups and represents MSU when appropriate. The existing Office for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives will report to the VP and CDO.
