Everyone Matters @ OSU

Everyone Matters @ OSU

I am the coordinator for Everyone Matters @ OSU, a campus-wide initiative encouraging inclusivity and non-judgment of others. At Oregon State University, we treat each other with civility, dignity and respect. Everyone Matters @ OSU emphasizes that we are a community full of individuals who all have value.

This initiative is primarily a social media campaign, creating an online community where OSU community members can express why they think Everyone Matters @ OSU. Throughout the year, students, faculty, staff, offices, departments, and student organizations post videos and photos that either individually or collectively voice support to prioritize inclusivity and non-judgment at OSU.

Everyone Matters @ OSU has partnered with many campus constituents including The Office of Equity and Inclusion, ASOSU, MUPC, SEAC, #bebeaverbold, and The Valley Library. Everyone Matters @ OSU illustrates the mission statement of Oregon State University by promoting social and cultural progress and demonstrates that a social media community can have an impact on the physical environment of our campus.

I think one of the most impactful Everyone Matters @ OSU events, was this past week at the Beaver Community Fair. Everyone Matters @ OSU hosted a photo booth where students and OSU community members answered the question, “Why is your friend awesome?” Here are a few examples of the great energy and positive work that came from that event.

Everyone Matters @ OSU challenges people to stop, think, and take action to demonstrate inclusivity and non-judgment. On a big campus where many people can feel marginalized, Everyone Matters @ OSU is an opportunity to take a small step to make a big difference.
