We are deeply committed to diversity as a valuable component of Mizzou’s campus life, community and culture.  At Mizzou, diversity is the rich variety of personal characteristics that we bring to our study, work, and other campus activities.  These include differing identities, abilities, backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives.  We value the uniqueness of every individual and strive to ensure each person’s success.  We stand firmly convinced that by sharing and rallying our unique characteristics in service of our core campus values of respect, responsibility, discovery and excellence, we can make Mizzou a better place to learn, work, serve, and innovate.

We actively foster a living, learning, and working community where everyone is valued and inspired to reach their full potential.
