Welcome to Oregon Tech's Multicultural Life! We started in December of 2017 as part of the institution's goals of better supporting underrepresented students, increasing diversity awareness, and creating a community where all belong. Multicultural Life puts on various events throughout the school year including Community Dinners, Snack & Substance, and cultural celebrations. The office supports cultural clubs including the Native American Student Union, Hawaii Club, Rainbow Owls, and the Latino Club. For students looking for resources and support on topics such as race, gender, sexuality, and class, Multicultural Life is a great place to start. The office is housed in the College Union on the Klamath Falls Campus, and is open to all students, staff, and faculty.
