Responding to Oregon's real-life challenges

The 2016 strategic plan for the Division of University Outreach and Engagement outlines how the Division responds to Oregon's complex problems as well as Oregon's natural landscape and industry, state priorities, and the mandate of Oregon State University.

  • The Division is committed to solving Oregon's challenges.
  • The Division is dedicated to promoting, supporting, preserving, improving issues critical to the success of Oregon communities.
  • The Division dedicates resources to champion state priorities.
  • The Division advocates for Oregon State University's strategic mandate: healthy planet, healthy people, healthy communitites.

By the very nature of the land-grant mission, we must respond to the realities of our communities and adapt as new challenges and issues arise in the present and the future.

Our vision is that the life of each person we engage will be demonstrably improved and enriched by access to and co-creation of innovation, knowledge and expertise.
