Oregon State University offers several retreats that support social change, including: Racial Aikido, Multiracial Aikido, International Student Social Justice Retreat, Examining White Identity in a Multicultural World, and Examining White Identity for Faculty and Staff. As a partnership between Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS), Diversity & Cultural Engagement (DCE), Student Leadership & Involvement (SLI), University Housing & Dining Services (UHDS), these weekend long retreats promote a campus dialogue about race and racism. Each of the retreats engage in the active exploration of the concept of race and how race influences our lived experiences and interactions.
