Our Department prides itself on building a diverse and vibrant community.  

Diversity is a dynamic phenomenon, life enriching and foundational to excellence. Diversity broadens the educational experience for students, faculty and staff. Diversity is key for promoting personal growth, encouraging critical thinking, fostering mutual respect and teamwork, and improving communication skills while building a stronger and healthier community at OSU, in Oregon, and beyond. At OSU, we strive to create and nurture an environment where a diversity of people, ideas, and perspectives flourish and inspire creativity and achievement.
