from 11:45-12:45 in 202 Kidder Hall or participate via a live webcast at http://live.oregonstate.edu.
A Steering Committee is in the process of revising the OSU Strategic Plan and is seeking University-wide input that will be used to assess progress toward achieving the goals of the Strategic Plan Phase II, and to update initiatives that will guide investments in support of the three signature areas of distinction.
