Diversity Catalyst Team

The Oregon State University Diversity Catalyst Team is a task force appointed by Scott Reed, Vice Provost of Outreach and Engagement, Director of OSU Extension Service.  The OSU Diversity Catalyst Team consists of representatives from OSU Division for Outreach and Engagement and works with the Outreach and Engagement leadership groups to articulate a vision and design and implement strategies to create a climate for change relative to diversity issues in higher education.

The goals of the Diversity Catalyst Team are:

  • Help the Division of Outreach and Engagement to become a healthy, thriving, learning organization that meets the changing needs of the diverse population in Oregon
  • Help our clientele to operate effectively and successfully in a multicultural world
  • Learn more about Honoring Diversity at OSU Extension

The Division of Outreach and Engagement and the Office of Equity and Inclusion will collaborate on diversity outreach efforts for the Division.  The Office of Equity and Inclusion will provide the management for Team and will oversee the Diversity Catalyst Team’s work.
