Institutional Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (IEDI) is charged with ensuring Missouri S&T’s compliance with University of Missouri System policies and procedures, state and federal statutes and regulations, especially where it concerns Title IX and other rules governing civil rights and equal opportunity.

The department serves as a resource to students, faculty, and staff in education, prevention, and investigation of incidents of sexual violence, as well as other possible violations of the university’s non-discrimination policies. 

In addition to these efforts, IEDI facilitates the development of a more diverse, inclusive campus through its administration of the university’s Affirmative Action Plan and assurance of Equal Opportunity in faculty and staff recruiting efforts. IEDI also works with current faculty and staff in appropriately exercising their rights under both FMLA and ADA.
