Welcome to Diversity
& Cultural Engagement
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.

Happy Black History Month! Founded by Carter G. Woodson in 1926 as "Negro History Week" the idea was celebrated but later became nationally known in the 1970's when Kent State University became first school to celebrate the legacy of Black excellence. President Gerald Ford in 1976 officially made "Negro History Week" into "Black History Month" in the month of February. Black History is more than just Feb... it is American History and we celebrate it 365 days a year. An opportunity to be enlighten, inspired, motivated, and reminded that Black people always have and always will be relevant in this nation and around the globe. We are a people of resilience, intellect, creativity and more and our imprinted is marked all over this nation. Celebrate the legacies with us today as we honor those that pioneered the way for us today.
