Oregon's -ISM (N.) course, "Exploring the Dynamics of Community, Diversity and Isms" was offered through the university's Communications department.

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.
