OUMT Diversity Committee

The OU Musical Theatre Diversity Committee is comprised of students, faculty, and staff, acting as “thought partners” who, when an incident is reported, can decide to address issues internally or take them up the ladder. The group’s mission (along with the mission of our DEI policy) is to create empathy.

We endeavor to cultivate an atmosphere of education, awareness and advocacy. This committee is charged with helping to cultivate an inclusive environment, confirming the values and norms for our classrooms.

Corrective action is intended to create better citizens, better versions of ourselves – rather than to punish. The committee will decide how each complaint is handled.

An incident reporting form can be found under student resources on the OU Musical Theatre website.
