Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Thank you for visiting the Outreach & Engagement Diversity, Equity and Inclusion website!

Our Mission & Commitment:

OSU´s Division of Outreach and Engagement enhances access to enrichment and problem solving through reciprocal relationships for the exchange of knowledge and resources in partnership with individuals, communities, business, industries, government, and educational institutions. The Division connects OSU, the state’s land-grant university, to the rest of the world by making its educational programs accessible wherever and whenever people need to learn.

The mission of the Outreach and Engagement Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is to design, plan, lead and implement, in collaboration with University partners and institutional change actors, initiatives, partnerships and strategic communications that advance diversity, equity and inclusion throughout all facets of the Division. This work aligns with the mission and values of Oregon State University, OSU´s strategic plan and our highest aspirations for social justice within the university community.

As a land grant institution we have the power to impact every single person that we come in contact with. To realize this vision, we must gather and invest in resources that ensure inclusion consciousness at all levels and ensure that people from all walks of life have the ability to transform the world through their unique talents, ideas and voices. Our goal is to ensure that these voices are not just heard but embraced.
