Division of Equity and Inclusion
Help students from diverse communities gain leadership skills and experiences at home and abroad.

The Division of Equity and Inclusion is a hub of information and a center for resources and expertise supporting equity, inclusion and diversity. Our efforts are guided by the I.D.E.A.L. framework: Inclusion, Diversity, Evaluation, Achievement, and Leadership.

 

Your support for Leadership Enrichment Internships (LEI) and scholarships for students in study abroad programs helps students from diverse and underserved communities gain skills and innovative experiences leading to success academically, professionally, personally and as contributing citizens.

 

1. Leadership Enrichment Internships (LEI).  Piloted by Division of Equity and Inclusion with three cohots since 2016 with the generous support of UO Alum Barbara Cargill.

LEI Intern Bailey Adam, Eric Richardson, Peter DeFazio
Eric Richardson, President, Eugene/Springfield NAACP; Rep. Peter DeFazio; and LEI Intern Bailey Adam

 

Paid mentored internships for students with diverse academic interests whose backgrounds are currently underrepresented in specific careers. LEI student experience is enhanced with:

  • professional development

  • career advisement

  • networking opportunities

  • real-life experience

Collaborative effort of campus and community:

  • UO departments such as Career Center and Holden Center provide enrichment opportunities.

  • Campus and community partners who have provided working internships and mentoring include:

Eugene-Springfield NAACP | Mobility International USA | UO Athletics | LatinX Strategies | Downtown Languages | UO Dept. of Architecture | NW Indian Language Institute | Black Strategies | University Housing | Coalition for Allyship and Engagement | UO Innovation & Partnership Services | Oregon Federal Courts | Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art

 

2. Scholarships for first generation male students of all backgrounds to participate in study abroad programs offered by the UO.

  • According to the Washington Post, in 2016–17, women accounted for more than two-thirds of American students studying abroad, a proportion that has remained constant for more than a decade.

  • Study abroad offers unique learning and cross-cultural opportunities as students are immersed in other cultures in and out of classrooms.

  • Programs build cultural consciousness, critical thinking, and essential professional skills in our ever-growing multicultural society and globally-connected world.
