OSU-Cascades hosts an annual Diversity Week to highlight the experiences of students, staff and community members from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds and encourage dialogue across difference. Members of the campus community are encouraged to create programming around themes including Ability and Access, Religion and Spirituality, Race and Ethnicity, Gender and Sexuality, and Socioeconomic Status.

Diversity Week is coordinated by the Office of Student Life and the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion with support from academic and co-curricular departments, student groups and community organizations. To submit Diversity Week programming ideas, contact the Diversity Coordinator.
