Dear Michigan Technological University students, 

We, the undersigned faculty and staff of Michigan Technological University, stand in steadfast support of an inclusive campus environment where all have equitable access to education.

To our LGBTQ+ students, know that we are committed to supporting you. We value freedom of speech, and we also recognize that hate speech is discriminatory, hurtful, and opposed to the university’s core value of community.

One of the university’s stated goals is to “foster and support an exceptional and diverse community of students, faculty, and staff.” Embracing diversity is at the heart of Michigan Tech. Together, we celebrate the strength in our differences and strive for a campus where every individual feels supported, valued, and empowered.

Please feel free to reach out to any of us.


Faculty and Staff of Michigan Technological University
