Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Residence Education and Housing Services (REHS) is committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, inclusive and safe environment for Spartans living in our on-campus residential housing community. We work through the values of diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice to build communities that encourage personal growth, relationship building and academic success.

We work to ensure Spartans have a positive experience while living on campus, both in our residence halls and apartments. This is your home during your time at MSU, and it should feel as close to home as possible. Our caucuses, resident assistants and intercultural aides offer support and education to help students thrive in building vibrant and engaging communities within and outside the residence halls and apartment communities.

We promote understanding and maintain a supportive and positive living environment through various programmatic initiatives that enhance personal and cultural awareness. We welcome you to connect and talk to us about your experiences and any ideas you have in creating an affirming and inclusive living environment for our Live On community. You can reach Associate Director for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Sharon Chia Claros, at chiaclar@msu.edu.
