Our mission is to foster diversity and inclusion in the Missouri S&T community by providing a welcoming climate for all students. We aim to support underrepresented, LGBTIQA+ community and their allies, first generation, and low income students from all walks of life through programming, retention, and mentoring initiatives.

Through programs and partnerships, Student Diversity Initiatives (SDI) supports diversity-related programming and promotes awareness about female, multicultural, and LGBTIQA+ related issues, while also supporting first generation and low-income students. SDI helps foster an academic and professional environment that supports all students of Missouri S&T and strengthens the campus community. At SDI you will have access to a computer lab, study spaces, meeting rooms, kitchen and a central gathering place in a safe and inclusive environment.  We foster social and cultural development through community spaces, event management, and collaborative relationships, while creating a lasting positive impression.
