Diversity & Inclusion Initiative

Student success is at the core of all we do at Morehead State University, and we believe that a diverse and inclusive campus plays a significant role in guaranteeing this success. Diversity, as a concept, describes an inclusive community of people with varied human characteristics, ideas and world views related, but not limited, to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, religion, color, creed, national origin, disabilities, socio-economic status, life experiences, geographical region, or ancestry, as well as the intersection of any combination of these. Inclusion recognizes the creation of a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment by MSU that honors and respects those differences.

Dr. Caroline AtkinsMSU's chief diversity officer, Dr. Caroline Atkins, is responsible for the development and oversight of programs, services and initiatives designed to enhance the recruitment and successful retention of students and/or faculty and staff from diverse and under-represented population groups.

Before joining Morehead State, Dr. Atkins served as a senior associate at the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE). She had numerous duties including to assist CPE staff and campus chief diversity officers with the development and implementation of campus-based diversity and inclusion plans in support of student success, particularly for underrepresented minority students.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Grants

The Eagle Diversity and Inclusion Team (EDIT) is soliciting proposals from the campus community for grant funding to support our goal of infusing diversity, equity and inclusion into every aspect of campus life. To advance this goal, we are encouraging collaborative efforts between colleges, units and student organizations that align with the University’s strategic plan and the diversity plan strategies. These grants are designed to support new and innovative projects and activities, not to support ongoing and existing events, current initiatives, or to cover budgetary reductions. Learn more
