Conception and Creation of the OSU Shared Student Values
As the first student-created values statement in the Oregon University System, this living document is a reflection of dedication, hard work, and the engagement of over a thousand students. In 2006, the P.E.A.C.E. OSU organization held forums to discuss issues within the OSU community. What came out of those forums was a desire to create a guiding document outlining the values shared by the student body. In June of 2007, a team of students took the initiative to record these values.
The Student Community Covenant Team worked diligently to meet with students at organizational meetings, held open forums, participated in a symposium and conducted a survey to reach out to as wide a cross section of the student body as was possible in order to ascertain their values.
The OSU Shared Student Values were unveiled in May, 2008.
