The objective of the project was for the district to better understand the needs of the community it serves as well as to develop a plan for moving forward with the diversity and inclusion efforts of the district. The project also involved a review of practices and experiences from around the nation as well as a review of the composition of the community and perspectives of internal staff members. Specifically, the project had four components:

  • Best Practices/Promising Practices Review
  • Review of THPRD Programs
  • Community Needs Assessment
  • Examination of Existing Demographic and Quantitative Data


The Inclusive Outreach and Diversity Development Project is a collaboration between Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation district (THPRD) and Portland State University’s Center for Public Service (CPS).
