The OSU Libraries recognizes that higher education needs to be more accessible to underrepresented communities given the fact that those within marginalized communities are more likely to have less access to funds for college than their privileged counterparts. Additionally, the lack of diversity and inclusion on college campuses, including Oregon State University, is an extra hindrance for students in certain communities and thus correlates with low retention rates among students from diverse backgrounds and communities.
Thus, the DSP committee and the OSU Libraries are dedicated to working toward creating not only a diverse space, but an inclusive, accountable, and progressive environment for students, staff, faculty, and users.
The OSU Libraries' Diversity Scholars Program provides an opportunity for experiential learning in an academic library and mentorship from a number of librarians to more fully support students seeking masters degrees in library science.
