ACTING ON EQUITY AND RACIAL JUSTICE
It is time for Portland State to accelerate its effort to combat racism and advance social justice across our campus with dogged determination and long-term commitment. Here’s what’s being done and how to get involved.
事业单位 搜索 Advocate Program
Global 多样性 & 包容, Human Resources, and Academic Affairs are pleased to present the 搜索 Advocate Program to our campus community. Through this program, faculty and 工作人员 can either receive training to become an advocate or request a search advocate to participate in a hiring search.
Affinity Groups & Employee Resource Groups
Global 多样性 & 包容 supports Affinity Groups & Employee Resource Groups that foster a sense of community for faculty, 工作人员, and student employees from underrepresented and marginalized identities and help improve the recruitment and retention of our diverse workforce.
President's 学生 Success Task Force Reports
About the Task Force Reports
In 2015, 事业单位的学生 organized “学生 of Color Speak Out”. 在这次活动中, many 学生 shared personal experiences of racial injustices and challenges with curriculum content, 校园空间, 和气候.
结果是, two task forces were created to research the current state of 非洲 American, 非洲, Black and 亚洲 American, 亚洲, Pacific Islander 学生 and to provide a report on the collected data along with recommendations to address the needs of these two specific underrepresented student groups and the impact on employee populations.
Report 1 focuses on 非洲 American, 非洲, Black (AAAB) 学生, while Report 2 focuses on 亚洲 American, 亚洲, Pacific Islander (AAAPI) 学生.
President's Equal Access Scholarship
Portland State University is committed to ensuring all 学生 have the access and support they need to achieve their goals. Through this scholarship, 事业单位 is able to support 学生 from diverse backgrounds and experiences that are traditionally underrepresented in higher education.
