We’re out there serving Oregon. And here for you.

Extension and engagement are core to Oregon State University's mission. Through our two core units and several strategic initiatives, our Division is helping create real solutions and positive impact across Oregon and beyond.

  • We engage communities in learning, identifying local needs and opportunities and problem solving.
  • We believe in co-creation of innovation, knowledge, and expertise.
  • We help connect OSU’s educational programs and resources to all people—wherever and whenever they wish to learn.

This collaborative work serves to improve the health and well-being of Oregonians and communities, encourage economic development and industry innovation, co-create and share the science and knowledge of Oregon State University and deliver access to education for learner success across the lifespan.
