General Resources

Diversity and Cultural Engagement’s Cultural Centers

The Cultural Centers fosters an inclusive community at OSU that is 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. We also coordinate safe environments in which students can share their multiple identities and learn about issues of culture, heritage, history, identity, and self-expression in an atmosphere of positive engagement and mutual respect.

Educational Opportunities Program

EOP provides support to undergraduate domestic students attending classes on OSU's main campus from historically underrepresented backgrounds. EOP provides the following services:

  • Assistance through the admissions process.
  • Assistance in locating financial resources.
  • Orientation to the University.
  • Academic and personal counseling.
  • Courses to help review or fill in gaps in math, reading, and writing.
  • Assistance with finding jobs and internships, writing resumes and cover letters.

College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP)

CAMP supports eligible migrant and seasonal farm workers and their children by helping them to enroll in and complete their first year of college. CAMP also focuses on increasing the persistence of CAMP students during their second year in college and achievement of post-secondary degree.

Disability Access Services

Disability Access Services facilitates access to University programs and services through accommodations, education, consultation, and advocacy.


OSU LSAMP seeks to integrate underrepresented students into the academic life at Oregon State and provides them with financial, academic, social, and professional support in a coordinated effort to help them achieve their academic and professional goals.
