As of March 16, 2020, we have moved to remote delivery of services and programs in alignment with OSU’s response to reduce the risk and spread of COVID-19. Learn about our remote delivery below.
We strive to swim against the current to challenge harmful 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.
Though Corvallis campus Cultural Resource Centers will be closed until further notice, we will continue to provide virtual opportunities for you to engage and be in community with us. We recommend you bookmark this page since it will be continually updated as new information is available.
Feel free to connect with us on our various social media outlets, which are listed all in one location on the Student Experiences & Engagement website. To connect with our professional staff members, please visit the Student Experiences & Engagement Contact page. If you’re not sure who to connect with or if you have general questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-737-9030. You can also speak with DCE staff on our virtual welcome desk on Zoom Spring term Monday – Friday, 2 pm – 3 pm. If you are accessing the Zoom Welcome Desk on your phone, use meeting ID 112-335-426 to join the room.

As we continue to develop ways to engage with you virtually, below, you’ll find some podcasts, videos and creative works produced by both the student staff of DCE and the broader OSU community. Feel free to view them, and we look forward to hearing your thoughts on them through our social media sites!

Mujeres Poderosas is a two part series composing of videos and Instagram posts (#ccccmujerespoderosas) highlighting both influential Latinas throughout history and Latina professional and academic faculty at Oregon State University’s Corvallis Campus. As part of Womxn Herstory Month 2019, the video series aimed to share the stories of Latina faculty on campus and introduce/connect students to Latinas who serve students on campus.
A Drop A Day video series is about self-care and exploring what it means to take care of our mental, physical, and emotional health. We are looking forward to sharing our discoveries about self-care with you, as well as featuring some incredible folks from our community.
This is a collaboration between Diversity & Cultural Engagement, Recreational Sports, and Counseling and Psychological Services.
The API Anthology project at Oregon State University aims to create a platform for members of Asian & Pacific Islander communities to tell their stories and share their thoughts on current events through various mediums in a more personal way. We hope that providing this opportunity will aid in the self-expressions of those in the community and inadvertently lead to the critical analyses of the intersectional identities within our communities.

AYA WoC Creatives: In the Spring of 2019, Dr. Natchee Barnd’s Building Alliances & Solidarities (ES 270) class worked with AYA to create a platform to elevate the voices of WoC and our allies. WoC Creatives is a result of that collaboration. Launched Fall 2020, WoC Creative showcases Still We Persist AYA’s webcast as well as art and prose submissions. Currently, the blog posts highlighted on the site are from the initial ES 270 course. In the coming weeks WoC Creatives will be updated with prose, poetry, and art from students in Dr. Barnd’s Race, Space, and Difference (ES355). We invite you to read through their work, look at the art, and/or watch an episode of Still, We Persist. If you feel called please share your art with us and we will highlight it on WoC Creatives.
