Student affairs five domains of learning
Health and Well-Being
SORCE's goal is to provide our student population with safety, security, and a sense of belonging. Recognizing that wellness leads to deeper learning, we support student development of healthy habits. We engage students with their community to reach beyond themselves and create change in the world.
Diversity and Global Consciousness
SORCE supports diverse identities, perspectives, and experiences found on our global campus that enhance student learning at Oregon State University. Students engage in activities that help them reflect on their own identities and cultures, develop empathy, and deepen their commitment to effect social change at OSU and beyond.
Career Discovery and Development
We guide students to identify their occupational strengths and interests, develop career readiness, and engage in professional relationships. The transferable skills that students gain through internships, campus employment, and other opportunities will enable them to navigate a future of change with confidence and adaptability.
Community and Civic Engagement
Our division provides opportunities for students to engage in service and reflect on issues of local and global concern. Students cultivate a commitment to the common good and contribute to a better world as engaged citizens and change agents.
Personal and Leadership Development
By exploring their own identities and building self-awareness, students become catalysts for change and ethical leaders of their generation. Our programming helps students strengthen their commitments, mobilize and engage their peers, and develop resiliency to thrive in the face of challenges.

SLI SORCE Allocation Team
The SLI SORCE team currently consists of three SLI students and one faculty advisor. OSU students are hired annually to serve as both SLI SORCE Coordinators and Allocation Team members. These Coordinators are responsible for all administrative, organization, promotion, and allocation activities. They also facilitate the annual budget process including the review and representation of SLI SORCE to the SLI Fee Board. One of the coordinators serves as a liaison on the Student Fee Committee (SFC). SLI SORCE coordinators and one of the Peer Educators must be present at every allocation hearing and consultation meeting. The allocation hearings are open to the greater OSU student body. All staff are compensated for service to this team.
