Has the institution assessed diversity and equity in terms of campus climate?:
Yes

A brief description of the campus climate assessment(s) :

1. MSU is part of an on-going national project to better understand the international, global and multicultural knowledge, skills, and attitudes that students gain through courses and experiences. The study is coordinated nationally by The Forum on Education Abroad (https://forumea.org/), a global membership association for the field of education abroad, and International Studies and Programs at MSU. To collect information, an online survey called Belief, Events and Values Inventory (BEVI) has been created.(http://www.thebevi.com/)

2. A positive work environment is essential for the recruitment, retention and advancement of the highest quality faculty at MSU. In Spring 2009, a work environment survey was completed by MSU tenure system and fixed term faculty. This survey, supported by MSU's ADVANCE grant, provides MSU with concrete data about faculty perceptions regarding MSU as a place to work and advance.
