BIPOC Network


The Black, Indigenous, and Racialized Staff Network was established to provide self-identified housing professionals with an opportunity to discuss issues of identity and social location that intersect with their work. These are designed as community gatherings that develop connections among members who may feel isolated at their home institutions and provide them an opportunity for dialogue, understanding, and solidarity. Participation is open to any association member that self-identifies as a Black, Indigenous, and/or Racialized person, including those who are multi-racial.


The Network seeks to:

  • provide opportunities for BIPOC staff to connect with one another and build community
  • provide opportunities for discussion of emerging issues in the field
  • offer support and solidarity for individual members
  • offer feedback to the OACUHO Board of Directors as a collective group
  • create space for promoting change within the larger association/field
