Oregon's -ISM (N.) course, "Exploring the Dynamics of Community,
Diversity and Isms" was offered through the university's Communications
The course focused on examining the dynamics associated with the "isms"
at Oregon State University and the surrounding community. Students in
this course were afforded an opportunity to explore the isms within
individual and institutional contexts. Specifically, students had the
opportunity to examine, document and analyze the influence of the isms on
their own lives and the lives of those who live, learn, work and interact
in the OSU and community which surrounds the school. Students also
explored and documented the social, psychological and behavioral
dimensions of the isms.
Community Educational Activity
-ISM (N.) students and faculty will work jointly with a local diversity
organization, the Corvallis Community Alliance for Diversity, to train
leaders and facilitators in diversity work. Target groups for CADUs
trainings include local business leaders, the Corvallis Police
Department, local rental property owners, and teachers. In addition to
the trainings, OSU and CAD will work jointly on coordinating a community
diversity celebration to showcase different cultures and help the
community to see this difference as beneficial.
