What does Diversity look like at UMSL

Our Veteran population are member of the Armed Forces of the United States who served on active duty.


Staff Membe


Students with disabilities are students with some physical or mental impairment that limits one or more major life activities.


LGBTQ Students


Students that identify as LGBTQ+ are recognized as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (or Questioning) and others.




Religion is a fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a group of people.


We strive to promote a campus community where:

All individuals can pursue their employment, educational, and service goals without bias based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, ancestry, age, genetic information, disability, or status as a Vietnam era veteran, and have an opportunity to increase their understanding and develop a deeper respect and appreciation for diversity in our society.
