Membership to the OSU IT Slack community is currently open to any OSU employee that works with or as part of an IT unit on campus. Some students of Oregon State University are allowed to join on a case-by-case basis. For the most part, however, this community is for employees (including student employees).

Code of Conduct

Above all else, members of this community will abide by Oregon State University’s Discrimination and Discriminatory Harassment Policy guidelines.

Additionally, the OSU IT Slack Community will be a fun, pleasant, and harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Participants asked to stop any innapropriate behavior are expected to comply immediately. The OSU IT admins can revoke membership of any member, at any time. Admins will contact that member and explain why he or she is losing membership.

In general, remember to:

  • Offer criticism and feedback in an honest, respectful, and kind way.
  • Be supportive and offer guidance when requested. The value in our community is everyone’s participation.
  • Make fun of things, not people. One of our legacy systems giving you grief? Remember there are people behind those systems.
  • Have fun and participate in the community in whatever way works for you.

Have a question? Direct message or email any of the OSU IT community admins.
