About OSU

Oregon State University has always been a place with a purpose – that of making a measurable difference in the quality of life for communities and the natural world we steward. This purpose is what draws our gifted students, motivates our faculty and staff, drives our research and teaching and carries our alumni through their accomplished careers. Today this means bringing cutting-edge technological innovation and a broad interdisciplinary framework to developing and implementing solutions for real-world problems.

 True to our Oregon heritage, ours is a democratic and expansive commitment. At OSU, we are committed to solving the problems that are most critical to all Oregonians and we are working in every corner of our state.  Our commitment and contributions impact our nation and the world. And true to our Oregon heritage, we are dedicated to preserving the healthy balance between human communities and the earth we depend on.
