Welcome to SDI
The mission of the SDI office is to foster diversity and inclusion in the Missouri S&T community by providing a welcoming climate for all students. The department aims to support underrepresented, first generation, and low income students from all walks of life through programming, retention, and mentoring initiatives.
Through programs and partnerships, Student Diversity Initiatives supports diversity-related programming and promotes awareness about female and multicultural related issues; first generation and low-income student support; SDI helps foster an academic and professional environment that supports the students of Missouri S&T and strengthens the campus community.
To better accommodate S&T students' needs SDI has extended business hours. SDI is open 8:00 am to 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
There are several advantages of having longer hours and access to our facilities. At SDI you will have access to a computer lab, study spaces, meeting room, kitchen and a central gathering place in a safe and inclusive environment. We foster social and cultrual development through community spaces, event management, and collaborative relationships, while creating a lasting positive impression.
