Addressing the Needs of an Increasingly Diverse Society. OUS Diversity Report, 2004
Oregon University System
The report includes an overview of the relevance of diverse educational environments and descriptions of the current initiatives within OUS to enhance the representation, inclusion, and engagement of diverse racial/ethnic populations. The issues associated with higher education diversity are multifaceted. Within OUS, the vision for diversity is a comprehensive and ongoing consideration that extends beyond mere numeric representation. Initiatives relating to representation seek to provide opportunity, enhance campus environments, and fulfill the mission of public higher education institutions as dynamic establishments that support surrounding communities and guide the production and attainment of knowledge that moves society forward. Activities that promote inclusion and engagement (i.e., quality of experience) seek to create environments that are progressive and responsive, provide benefits for all OUS populations, and that celebrate the achievements and contributions of all participants. Appended are: (1) OUS Enrollment by Racial/Ethnic Group; (2) OUS Enrollment of First-time Freshmen by Racial/Ethnic Group; (3) OUS Degrees Awarded by All Levels, Discipline and Racial/Ethnic Group; (4) OUS Full-Time Ranked Instructional Faculty by Racial/Ethnic Group; and (5) University Mission Statements.
