What is engagement work? What is its impact on OSU and our surrounding community?
“Engagement is embedded in the strategic goals of OSU, which aligns with our mission as a land-grant university. In addition to being the largest research university in Oregon, we hold the highest full-time student enrollment of any public university in the state, and we have a community presence in all 36 counties. This trifecta of cutting-edge research, student accomplishment, and active public engagement are intrinsically intertwined.”
–Provost & Executive Vice President Ed Feser, 2023
In order to celebrate and honor the incredible engagement work being conducted in and around our university, we look forward to announcing the award winners for the second annual OSU Engagement Awards at this conference, featuring awards in the categories of:
OSU Engagement Faculty Award

If staying at the hotel, no parking passes are needed. If not, and you would like to purchase a daily pass:
While our virtual permits are for B and C zones, our virtual permit is also valid for vehicles with a DMV-issued ADA parking placard to park in ADA parking spaces in any zone. When entering the parking garage, there are ADA parking spots to the left of the entrance.
If you are interested in checking out more of the town of Corvallis before or after your campus visit, we'd be happy to recommend local restaurants or shops to check out.
Did you know that the city of Corvallis has fareless public transit to navigate the city? There is also a Beaver Bus for getting around campus. Visitors are welcome to use either of these services to make it easier to get to where you're going!
