Students, faculty, staff, and administrators deserve a positive, equitable, and inclusive environment in which they can live, work, learn, and teach. The University of Oregon needs to be a welcoming, supportive and respectful community for people diverse in culture, identity, thought, perspective, and interests.
Inclusion Strategies and Initiatives

- Work to ensure accessibility for all students as it relates to classrooms, technology, and various other university services.
- Incentivize university actors to make diversity and inclusion a priority.
- Examine the utility of exchange and visitation programs which would enhance institutional priorities and the university’s goals relative to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
- Better incorporate issues of equity, implicit bias, and cultural understanding in centralized and departmental human resources initiatives such as searches, onboarding, training, and exit interviews.
- Provide more educational opportunities for students, faculty, administrators, and staff across campus to learn more about inclusive behaviors and cultural competency.
- Enhance existing and, where appropriate, create new physical spaces for cultural and educational activities that promote inclusion.
