Oregon State Students,


We acknowledge the impact felt within our community as a result of a statement sent to OSU students on May 28, 2021, by the former ASOSU Executive Branch before leaving office on June 1, 2021. We are writing to you today as the current leaders of the recognized student government to affirm our commitment to supporting all OSU students.


It is often said, but bears repeating, that diversity is our strength, as it enables us to better understand the world around us from perspectives beyond our own. We want Palestinian and Jewish students to know that we support you, and are here to provide resources and hear your concerns.


As part of that effort, ASOSU is committed to inviting campus partners, including the Office of Institutional Diversity (OID), the Office of Diversity and Cultural Engagement (DCE), the Ettihad Cultural Center (ECC), Oregon State Hillel, the Faculty Senate, and others, to discuss and create space to allow constructive dialogue in this area. This will be a priority for our ASOSU administration in the upcoming year and we look forward to sharing updates with the community.


We also want to affirm that ASOSU is committed to condemning violence, harassment, or discrimination that targets individuals or groups of people based on their social identity.


If you’d like to engage further with ASOSU regarding this topic or other areas of advocacy for you as a student, please reach out to us at [email protected].
