We are Oz: SUNY Oswego enrolls its most culturally diverse student population ever
“I Am Oz” is a statement familiar to most students, faculty, staff and recent alumni of the State University of New York College at Oswego (SUNY Oswego). It is the inclusive and welcoming statement that has been the opener for acknowledging and learning about the broad ethnic and cultural backgrounds of students, faculty and staff at the institution from every background. This week the college welcomed to campus more than 2,100 new students and the college is celebrating its most culturally diverse (defined as students who self-identify as Hispanic, Asian, African-American, Native American, Pacific Islander or in more than one category) student body in the college’s history—25.8% of the total undergraduate and graduate population including a record-setting 33.8% of the first-year class, up 3.2% from last year’s first-year class and an 80% increase from 2010. Each of these students are now a part of “Oz” and, together, they are transforming and shining the light on Oz.
