In the wake of Tuesday’s historic election, many OSU community members have expressed fear for their own or others’ rights, safety, and wellbeing. The faculty of Oregon State University at this moment reaffirms our commitment to “uplift the dignity of those with whom we interact,” to “create a nurturing campus community,” and to build a “just, inclusive, and equitable campus.” We rededicate ourselves to preparing students to engage constructively in an increasingly diverse and complex society by teaching empirical, ethical, and critical reasoning, appreciation of multiple perspectives, and social and environmental responsibility.
