Diversity and Inclusion at Oregon Tech

Diversity and Inclusion

At Oregon Tech, we are committed to building and supporting a diverse and inclusive community of students, faculty and staff, where each person is welcomed, valued, and feels a sense of belonging. We strive to practice polytechnic cultural competency in everything that we do: from the classroom to meetings and events, fostering a welcoming campus and preparing our students to thrive in a diverse workplace and world.

 


Diversity


At Oregon Tech, diversity means a full, representative range of perspectives, backgrounds, and differences.

Equity


Equity refers to not just equality but fairness. We work to make sure all people have successful outcomes, no matter where they start, especially for historically underrepresented populations.


Inclusion


Inclusion is the active and intentional choice of engaging with diversity and creating a sense of belonging that acknowledges that we all benefit when everyone has a place at the table.

Oregon Tech Land Acknowledgment


Oregon Tech resides on the ancestral homelands and traditional territory of the Klamath, Modoc, and Yahooskin Nations who have stewarded this land since time immemorial. It is important to acknowledge the ancestors of this place and to recognize that we are all here because of the sacrifices forced upon them. We also respectfully acknowledge the many tribes and bands of the Klamath Basin region, and the continued sovereignty of the nine tribes of Oregon and Northern Californian tribes that have ties to this land.


In doing so, we hope to honor their legacy and lives, as well as continue to build the relationship with the Native peoples of this region, the state of Oregon, and across the United States.
