Make a gift. Make a difference.

The Division of Inclusion, Diversity and Equity (IDE) is preparing and supporting the leaders of tomorrow by introducing elementary and middle school students to STEM concepts, creating fun and engaging learning opportunities for the Mizzou community, providing spaces that foster a sense of belonging and giving valuable leadership and professional development opportunities to future faculty. 

These programs and initiatives are possible in part due to the generous support of donors like you. Help us continue providing access and opportunities for students at the University of Missouri and in the community.

“The mere existence of the Multicultural Center at Mizzou has been really impactful for me. I think back on my last four years at Mizzou, and I know that my time here was deeply engrained and would not have been the same without the Division of Inclusion, Diversity and Equity.”

“STEM Cubs provides a welcoming and educational experience that left our 6-year-old eager to participate again. As parents, we loved the immersive experience. From the staff to the activities, we give STEM Cubs 5 stars. M-I-Z!”

“IDE makes you feel like you belong, matter and that you can impact society. I don’t want to just walk away from Mizzou with a degree. I want to know that I made an impact on someone’s life. I didn’t just accumulate knowledge for myself, but I was able to transfer that knowledge to someone else. IDE has given me that opportunity.”

“We all have our own unique lens based on our personal experiences. My work with IDE has shown me how to see through the lens of someone else and use that perspective to support them.”
