At OHSU, we believe diversity means creating a community of inclusion. That is why we are committed to building an environment where students from historically underrepresented populations can thrive and maximize their potential. The Center for Diversity and Inclusion collaborates with schools and other programs or departments to provide the following services.
It Takes a Community: A Medical Student Guide To Diversity & Inclusion
The guide released in August 2020 was developed and publish by MD program student leaders to help learners find information, learn new skills, and
connect with other students and faculty to support diversity at OHSU.

Health Justice Co-op space
The Health Justice Co-op provides a safe space for students from marginalized communities, designed to foster collaborations that will advance justice in health care and education. The HJC was developed by students of color and of the LGBTQ community and faculty out of a clear response to students' experiences of racism and marginalization on campus and a need for a place designed to support community and collaboration.
