Message from President Schott 

Dear Southern Oregon University community, 

I want all people on our campus – whether they are students, employees SOU President Dr Linda Schott
or visitors – to experience Southern Oregon University as a welcoming,
secure environment. We must not be complacent in striving toward that goal.
It is ongoing work, and we must remember that the job is never finished.

Our campus prioritized this work in 2018 when we adopted a strategic plan
with this key strategic direction: SOU will create a diverse, equitable, inclusive community where learners flourish.

This work remains essential to our campus community. We must reassure
each member of our community that they are valued and supported, and we
must strive to create and maintain a culturally competent campus that actively
models inclusive excellence.

Let us redouble our efforts to create the community we all envision
SOU to be.

Linda Schott
President, Southern Oregon University

Commitment to an Inclusive Community
