March 27th-28th | Delivered Remotely

Pillar: Inclusive 

Racial Aikido explores the experiences of Students of Color (SOC) at OSU and beyond. Our focus for the 2021 experience is on community-building, the recognition of identity and racism, and response and replenishment to these realities. Our goal is to build a supportive network to learn and thrive at OSU and beyond.  

Racial Aikido will be a completely remote experience this year. We anticipate using Zoom to facilitate our time together. Final details are still being confirmed on our schedule. We will likely meet on Friday, March 26 at 4-6pm PST and on Saturday, March 27 at 9am-3pm PST with multiple breaks in-between that time.  

Our priority deadline for applications is Friday, March 12, 2021.
