Welcome to Diversity
& Cultural Engagement

Bridging differences & building community.

Being an OSU student means more than going to class. It also means cultivating the skills you need to change the world. Diversity & Cultural Engagement is your platform for collaborating to build an inclusive, just community. Enriched by differences, our programs and initiatives empower students to develop multiple perspectives and foster self-awareness.

We strive to swim against the current to challenge societal norms–where needed conversations are often uncomfortable–embracing creativity and critical thinking along the way. At DCE, we collectively transform ourselves to make a better world.
