Global Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity, equity, and inclusion is not only a value and a mission of Portland State University, it is the essential framework of who we are and what we do as an institution and community. Global Diversity and Inclusion is the central division that leads and facilitates the continuous quest for Inclusive Excellence.
Student Support & Programs
We commit to inclusion of historically marginalized communities and those underrepresented in higher education. Diversity & Multicultural Student Services empowers student populations whose retention, academic success, and graduation are challenged by socio-historical factors and contemporary inequities.
Equity & Compliance
We commit to equity as a foundation of PSU’s excellence. We define equity as ensuring everyone has access to opportunities necessary to satisfy essential needs, advance their well-being, and achieve their full potential.
Diversity Education & Learning
Global Diversity & Inclusion offers diversity, equity, and inclusion education addressing a variety of topics, needs, and experience levels. We provide a body of learning opportunities of breadth and depth, from beginner to advanced.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Advocacy
Diversity, equity, and inclusion advocacy requires the ongoing examination of all activities, practices, and systems of PSU. We seek to identify the barriers and challenges to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We advocate for any and all needed changes that aid in making every person feel welcome and valued.
