As of March 16, 2020, we have moved to remote delivery of services and programs in alignment with OSU's response to help reduce the risk and spread of COVID-19. Learn about our remote delivery at dce.oregonstate.edu/COVID19.
The DCE Student Advisory Board (SAB) is a group made up of students, staff, and community members that play a vital role in advancing DCE's programs, budgets, and priorities for the upcoming year. Student Fees are our unit's primary source of funding, and it is important to ensure that we are utilizing those funds in direct service to students. Board members carefully evaluate past usage of fees, determine current student needs, and advocate for any budgetary changes through an annual presentation for the ASOSU Student Fee Committee.
Diversity & Cultural Engagement currently operates on a fee level of $32.33 per student, for Fiscal Year 19. This fee enables us to provide high impact learning experiences and leadership opportunities that increase social and academic success of our underserved students. Student fees additionally enable us to employ ~90 students in several key positions, as well put on programs and activities that serve to raise awareness, build communities, develop identities, and increase students' wellbeing. Our programs from the 2017 - 2018 academic year, brought in over 13,014 community members in estimated attendance.
