Opening its doors in 2011, The Center for Student Inclusion and Diversity (CSID) houses several offices, programs and resources.  Those offices include Multicultural Academic Student Services, Indigenous Affairs, LGBTQ Services, Veterans' Resource Center and the Institute for Transformative Dialogue as well as the grant program Student Transition Enrichment Program (STEP). 

"At CMU, we define inclusion as: Full participation for all in every activity and venue of CMU. It means that every student, faculty and staff member, graduate, guest and visitor feel they can join in on the great things happening on our campus, and they will feel welcome to do so." - Dr. Robert O. Davies, President

The CSID provides a safe space that nurtures learning and the achievement of personal and educational goals through cultural enrichment, peer tutoring, mentoring, and leadership activities on campus. The CSID allows students a place to study and do homework, meet, hang out/relax, and access wireless internet.

The programs and services of Student Inclusion and Diversity foster academic achievement, leadership development, and advancement of all students at Central
Michigan University.
