The Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI)
The Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®) assesses intercultural competence—the capability to shift cultural perspective and appropriately adapt behavior to cultural differences and commonalities. Campus Compact of Oregon staff are qualified administrators of the IDI and can work with your organization to capture a profile of a group's intercultural communication abilities, provide coaching to individuals, and more.
The History of Race in Oregon and U.S.
In what context do we talk about race, racism, and oppression? This interactive history lesson traces the roots of racism in our systems in the United States and state of Oregon.
Whiteness and White Supremacy Culture
Our culture values one way of being over others, and narrowly defines success. Learn about what "whiteness" is, how it was created, and how it negatively impacts all of us through a series of interactive activities.
Microagressions and Interrupting Oppressive Language
Microagressions are brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative slights and insults towards members of marginalized groups. This interactive workshop allows participants to practice identifying and responding to microagressions, in order to interrupt the oppressive language that we use on a daily basis.
The Equity and Empowerment Lens 101
The Multnomah County Equity and Empowerment Lens (with a racial justice focus) is a transformative quality improvement tool used to improve planning, decision-making, and resource allocation leading to more racially equitable policies and programs. At its core, it is a set of principles, reflective questions, and processes that focuses at the individual, institutional, and systemic levels. This workshop will introduce you to the Lens, how it is used, and lead your group through an application of its tools.

"As Campus Compact of Oregon has begun to facilitate deep work around equity within education, the GEAR UP program now receives bi- weekly equity training through their ELSEE model which aligns directly with the ethos of GEAR UP. It has been exciting to watch this tiny organization maximize internal resources and passion to create change." - Angela Nusom, Co-Director, PPS GEAR UP
"As a small college serving mostly rural communities, the type of support we receive from Campus Compact of Oregon increases our reach and impact. This is particularly true when it comes to serving underserved groups and addressing the many economic and race-based inequities that exist within Lincoln County. Two years in a row, Josh Todd (Executive Director of Campus Compact) has been a keynote speaker at our Fall In-Service. His engagement with our entire faculty and staff has moved us forward as an organization in understanding and addressing racial equity."
- Birgitte Ryslinge, President of Oregon Coast Community College
"Warner Pacific College has significantly benefitted from engagement in Campus Compact of Oregon’s equity education work. Campus Compact provided equity training for our entire employee community at one of our Professional Development Days. Their approach and demeanor with sometimes challenging content created an environment where our teams could work together to identify ways to be more equitable and inclusive in our service to students and working with one another."
- Andrea Cook, President of Warner Pacific University
"The training Blue Mountain Community College has received from Campus Compact of Oregon and Josh Todd has allowed us to broaden our understanding of equity and inclusion. This topic is now becoming part of our everyday conversation and work. The opportunity to have Josh on campus with us as part of our fall term Pre-service event and again with our Achieving the Dream work team at BMCC for equity training has been most valuable and has provided us with language and tools we did not have before."
- Camille Preus, President of Blue Mountain Community College
