The work to support equity-minded campus practices, curriculum, and culture has been happening at Minnesota State colleges and universities for decades. The system-wide goal of Equity 2030 is to eliminate racial graduation disparities by the year 2030. Focusing on an equity gap instead of an achievement gap allows us to frame our work on creating equity-minded practices, pedagogy, curriculum, and inclusive communities. At MSUM, we are committed to building our university's capacity to serve students historically underserved in higher education.
