College of Science
The College of Science exists to create, share, preserve, and apply knowledge. Through these pursuits, the college prepares individuals for success; benefits the state, nation, and world through the intellectual and economic contributions of those individuals; and improves the quality of life of individuals and their communities through research and its resultant benefits.
The mission of the College of Science lies at the heart of the university's goals to provide a compelling learning experience, to become a top-tier institution in teaching and research, and to serve all of Oregon as its campus.
The college teaches mathematics and basic science to every undergraduate at OSU and provides the fundamental underpinnings of degrees in engineering, pharmacy, agricultural sciences, forestry, and health and human sciences. The college plays a central role in preparing students for professional careers in the health sciences, developing talented science and mathematics educators, and in preparing a new generation of scientists and mathematicians.
The faculty, staff, and students in the College of Science are central to the quality and impact of the university's basic research and play a central role in the interdisciplinary scientific and technical research centers on campus.
