Diversity Scholars

The Diversity Scholars Program provides academic and personal support to students who have been recognized for their academic excellence and their commitment to diversity. We provide opportunities to explore and participate in activities that allow them to demonstrate their knowledge and appreciation of diversity and inclusion. 


The Conexiones Program, in collaboration with the Bilingual Teacher Scholars program through the College of Education, provides support and guidance to all participants. The program is committed to the diversification of the educator workforce through an innovative and collaborative “grow your own” program in collaboration with major school districts and community colleges across Oregon.


The On-Track program is designed to provide historically underrepresented and underserved college students with a support program that will assist in ensuring academic and personal success, as well as provide opportunities for social development.

Multicultural Representatives 

The MCR mentors are committed in assisting in the retention of historically underrepresented & underserved students. They provide a personal perspective and guidance to new students from first-generation, low-income, and/or underrepresented backgrounds.

Multicultural Student Union

MSU mission is to promote diversity and cultural awareness throughout the Western Oregon University campus and the surrounding community. MSU gives students, faculty and staff an opportunity to share their cultural background while learning about others.
