News and Initiatives
The Open Forums on Graduate Education Project (Winter 2012) was a collaborative endeavor between the OSU Graduate School, Associated Students of Oregon State University (ASOSU), the OSU Coalition of Graduate Employees (CGE), the OSU Chapter of Mediators Beyond Borders (MBB), and the OSU Team Liberation. The primary objective of the project was to qualitatively elicit feedback, concerns and ideas from graduate students in Oregon State University system about graduate education and graduate student experience at OSU. Findings from the project were presented for consideration in the Graduate School's 5 year Strategic Plan, and are to be used as a reference document for individuals and entities working to advance graduate education at OSU.

The Graduate School's Excellence in Graduate Mentoring Award was established to recognize and encourage outstanding mentoring of graduate students by OSU Graduate Faculty Members.
The mission of OSU is "the creation and discovery of knowledge in service to the public good." While rooted in the tradition of the land-grant university, this dynamic mission calls for innovative programs of study that respond to the emerging challenges and questions posed by modern times.
Renewal application pending.
The Professional Science Master's degree programs provide students with opportunities to earn an M.S. degree through non-thesis, interdisciplinary programs that require internship experience and integrate graduate studies in science with training in communication, business management, ethics, and computer applications.
