The College of Science and the Department of Chemistry at OSU are committed to creating equitable and inclusive learning and working environments for their students, faculty, and staff. One of our primary foci is on enhancing recruitment, retention, and success for first-generation, underrepresented racial and ethnic minority, and female students or postdoctoral fellows. In addition, several faculty-led initiatives and committees focus on diversity and inclusivity in the classroom and beyond. To meet these goals, we also value involvement in professional societies committed to the advancement of URMs in STEM (e.g., SACNAS, Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science). OSU is an AA/EOE/Vets/Disabled. 





The College of Science comprises 16 academic departments and programs that offer 17 disciplinary degrees, containing 45 options among them, as well as 11 pre-professional options. Science is one of the university’s largest academic units with approximately 300 faculty, 465 graduate students, 2796 undergraduate students, and 100 management service and classified personnel. Additionally, these faculty and students collaborate in three of the university’s world-class research centers, namely the Linus Pauling Institute, the Environmental Health Sciences Center, and the Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing. The College supports seven partnerships that bring science and mathematics education to the teachers, students, and parents in Oregon’s K-12 community. The total annual instructional and research budget supporting the College of Science is approximately $54,000,000.
