At Oakes College we seek to provide our students with the highest quality education. To us this means not only preparing students for university-level coursework, but also providing them with the skills to lead thoughtful and productive lives and to work with people of other backgrounds who may hold different values.

In the Oakes College core course, Communicating Diversity for a Just Society, we explore the interconnections between our personal histories and our educational experiences and how such relationships shape our learning as well as our personal identities. Using these concepts, Oakes students are able to view their university experiences through a lens of diversity and equality.
