Campus Diversity

OSU-Cascades sees diversity as a strength, a competitive advantage and a moral imperative. We want to shape the culture and the workforce of the university to be more reflective of the pluralistic world our students encounter.

We have an obligation to prepare our students for a diverse world. They need the capacity to become engaged citizens in order to contribute to local and international communities.

Students need to be able to address longstanding and persistent real-world issues and challenges related to class, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, language, race, ability and sexual orientation. In order to create this learning environment, we intend to foster a campus environment that is inclusive and accessible to students, faculty, staff and administration.
