UMSL is Diversity. 


The University of Missouri-St. Louis is committed to an inclusive campus community that values and respects all its members and achieves educational excellence through diversity.

What does Diversity look like at UMSL

Knowing that people with disabilities, who have some physical or mental impairment that limits one or more major life activities, will have full access to resources that help them pursue their goals.


LGBTQ Students


Ensuring everyone in the UMSL community is respectful of individual gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.




Encouraging respect for all religions, the fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed on 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.
