Equity and Inclusion

We at OSU-Cascades want your educational journey to be safe, welcoming and rich with diverse experiences.

We intend to create a climate that values diversity of ethnicity, race, gender and gender identity, nationality, age, language, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, disability and political affiliation.

We want to ensure equality of opportunity in all that we do. We strive to ensure equality in terms of the opportunity to become a member of the OSU-Cascades learning and working community; in one's opportunity to participate in and contribute to the work; in one's opportunity to participate in and benefit from the programs, services and activities; and in terms of the communities that are served by OSU-Cascades.

We need to work together to create an organization that enables success for everyone with whom we interface. We create and sustain this environment through interpersonal interactions that explicitly support and affirm the inherent dignity and uniqueness of individuals and communities and through institutional efforts that address systemic barriers to inclusion.

We must recognize that a diversity of people, perspectives, experiences and thought is essential to a compelling research, scholarship and learning environment. We aim to develop policies and practices that promote and enhance diversity in all OSU-Cascades endeavors.
