The office of Diversity and Belonging promotes a dynamic, diverse, and inclusive campus through events, programs, and relationship building with all members of the Oregon Tech community.
Our commitment to diversity includes bringing people together to create a community at Oregon Tech where all feel a sense of belonging.
Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all Oregon Tech-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact GetInvolved@oit.edu in advance.

Oregon Tech awards Leadership and Diversity (LAD) Scholarships each year to students who meet the application criteria. Students must not have a bachelor's degree in order to receive an LAD Scholarship. LAD Scholarship recipients are expected to fulfill ten service hours each term, providing leadership and/or promoting diversity in some way at Oregon Tech or in the community.

"Individuals within the LGBTQ community are already faced with enough obstacles in their daily lives that they don't need the added stress of figuring out how to pay for a higher education. Through the means of finding 30 scholarships dedicated to supporting the community, we're hoping to alleviate some of that stress. Many scholarships go unapplied each year, which means lots of money goes unused. So make sure you check out these scholarships while you're planning your educational future." From Zippia.com
