CoDaC History

CoDaC was founded in 2001 by a group of UO faculty, administrators, staff and students committed to advancing inclusive excellence through critical thinking and an ethic of care. During the last decade, CoDaC’s staff has consisted of a diverse team of research faculty, graduate students, and professionals with backgrounds in psychology, sociology, education, communication, curriculum development, conflict mediation, student affairs and theater arts. CoDaC has sponsored a range of training programs, professional development workshops, and public events.

In 2013, CoDaC became formally incorporated within the Division of Equity and Inclusion with a mandate to work with individuals and units across campus to advance the university’s goals of equity and inclusion.
