Cultural Resource Centers

Oregon State University is home to seven cultural resource centers that provide support services to students, faculty and staff to learn about different cultures and communities. The centers are committed to social justice and liberation for all people, regardless of racial/ethnic background, gender, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic class, age and/or physical abilities.

The centers are managed by the Diversity and Cultural Engagement (DCE) department within the Division of Student Affairs. DCE is a hub for engagement outside of the classroom that builds community and supports students’ personal growth, development and abilities to change the world.

DCE also facilitates several programs and initiatives that support the needs of diverse student communities are offered through the centers, including events and activities such as national history and heritage month programs, social justice workshops, cultural holiday celebrations, cooking demonstrations, craft nights and more.
