Oregon State University President Ed Ray will share some exciting stories about the university’s direct impact on Oregon and beyond when he addresses campus this week. Ray will speak Thursday, Jan. 19, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the LaSells Stewart Center.
From supporting Portland’s signature outdoor and athletic apparel industry and playing a key role in the state’s $4.3 billion agriculture industry, to producing alumni that work in eco-technology, microbrewing and event production, OSU makes a far greater impact on Oregon than many realize.
Ray will discuss a number of specific and measurable examples of the university’s impact, both personal and economic, that have come as a result of OSU’s cutting-edge research, entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to its land grant mission.
He will also talk about the commitment that faculty, students and alumni are making to promote economic growth, strengthen communities and improve the quality of life around the state.
