Equity, Inclusion, Diversity

We are collaborative, confident and kind. We care for one another and show our support for what’s right.

In the College of Public Health and Human Sciences, we fight for health equity and health as a human right. We gather diverse experts and partners to pursue common goals, and we prepare the next generation of globally aware leaders and problem-solvers. We do this because it’s the right thing to do – and because ensuring equitable access to health and tackling complex challenges takes each and every one of us.

Moving Forward Together

Realizing our commitment to leading change and ending systemic racism within Oregon State University requires that we collaboratively work as faculty, staff and students to consider and take actions consistent with OSU’s mission and the values of the university community.

The Moving Forward Together website outlines actions underway within the university to advance this commitment.

Expand your understanding and find community

Connect more deeply with members of the OSU community through cultural celebrations, the cultural resource centers, the Cultural Ambassador Conversant Program and more. With the broad programming at OSU, everyone can discover other cultures and share something from their own.
