Shared Student Values

Mission and Aspirations

We, the students at Oregon State University, are present within this community to complete a quest to better ourselves. To thrive intellectually, emotionally, personally, and socially requires us to draw closer together in the pursuit of our dreams. We feel that in order for us to succeed, it is paramount that we challenge each other to be in community. We pledge to embrace the values that were created by students, for students, to guide our time here.


The values highlighted below will help create an environment in which fellow colleagues are able to prosper and grow. They were generated, defined and supported by OSU students and appear in no distinct order, all are equally important. 

These OSU Shared Student Values were unveiled in May 2008.
