Diversity & Inclusion
The Ohio State University at Newark promotes the respect and equitable treatment of all who learn, work and socialize upon our campus. Ohio State Newark values diversity in people and ideas. We truly embrace the inclusive sentiments of our mantra, “one campus, one university”.
We are committed to providing all students with optimal opportunities for academic and social success. We offer programs to appeal to unique and varied groups while working towards an all-embracing, inclusive campus. This is a supportive community where students can comfortably join in or confidently stand out! Every student, staff and faculty member has something to contribute – every Buckeye counts!
Diversity refers to the variety of differences and similarities/dimensions among people, such as age, class/caste, culture, education, disability, gender identity or expression, generation, geography, language, nationality, race/ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, tribal/indigenous origins, work style, work experience, job role and function, thinking style, personality type, veteran status, and military status.
Inclusion refers to how diversity is leveraged to create a fair, equitable, healthy and high-performing organization or community where all individuals are respected, feel engaged and motivated, and their contributions toward meeting organizational and societal goals are valued.
Bias and Discrimination
BART is “a resource for anyone who needs to report an incident of bias or wants to explore and better understand issues like bias and discrimination, and how to effectively respond.” Due to the nature of these type of incidents, Ohio State Newark partners with their co-located Central Ohio Technical College campus for reporting of bias complaints. Once a complaint is received, it is forwarded to the cost-shared COTC and Ohio State Newark Office of Student Life for review and investigation.
