Diversity Landmarks, named in reference to the planting of diversity signs along sidewalks and entryways, is a campus warming activity designed to promote awareness and display diversity sentiments of campus constituents. This project is headed by the Division of Diversity and Inclusion.

Landmarks truly represent what the MSU Public Affairs mission is all about.
