OCPA strives to be a welcoming and just community that appreciates, understands and celebrates diversity and multiculturalism while critically examining its practices and policies in the continued push for equity, inclusivity and human dignity.
OCPA affirms the importance of equity, inclusion, and social justice in all aspects of the lives of our membership, both personally and professionally. OCPA recognizes it is our responsibility to promote these values, as they are central to the mission of advancing the Ohio higher education community. We strive to foster a stronger community of practice that appreciates and celebrates difference, and to ensure our membership, leadership, scholarship, and programming reflect these values. We encourage all of our members to consider their own responsibility in promoting equity, inclusion, and social justice on their campuses, in their lives, and within OCPA.
