What are the ICI Campus Communities Breakfasts?

ICI Campus Community breakfasts (previously lunches) are offered once a month in the Brody large private dining room. Spaces are limited to 50 staff, faculty, academic specialists and administrators on a first come first serve basis.

The purpose of these breakfasts is to increase communications, promote collaboration, share updates with DEI projects, provide resources, ask questions, offer solutions and spotlight a campus DEI partner(s). As DEI practitioners, finding opportunities to convene in a supportive space is necessary and important. This is also an opportunity to learn about DEI efforts at MSU.
