Graduate Student Equity and Inclusion Resources
As part of our commitment to building a diverse and inclusive department, university, and discipline, the Department encourages graduate students to join caucuses and networks for populations underrepresented in academia, such as:
- Black Doctoral Network
- National Conference of Black Political Scientists
- Latina Researchers Network
- American Political Science Association caucuses, including the Women’s Caucus in Political Science, Latino Caucus, LGBT Caucus, Asian Pacific American Caucus, among others.
- We also encourage prospective or current students to explore APSA’s other resources related to diversity and inclusion
Students should also be aware of the following on-campus related to equity and inclusion, and problem or grievance resolution:
- Office of Affirmative Action & Equal Opportunity: students can explore both confidential and non-confidential resources, discuss a concern or make a report related to discrimination, harassment, or other issues
- Title IX: provides information regarding the Student Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment and Violence Complaint, as well as Response Policy, reporting obligations, and links to online trainings regarding prohibited discrimination and bias
- UO Safe: provides support for victims and survivors of sexual assault
- Center on Diversity and Community (CoDaC): students can explore programs and initiatives related to equity and inclusion
- Graduate School Problem Resolution Resources: outlines resources and processes related to concerns and grievances
