What is Outreach and Engagement?
As a land-grant institution committed to teaching, research and outreach and engagement, Oregon State University promotes economic, social, cultural and environmental progress for the people of Oregon, the nation and the world.
The Division of University Outreach and Engagement was established in 2007, based on the recommendation put forth by the President’s Commission on Outreach and Engagement. The creation of the divison united OSU's Extended Campus and Extension Service units, both major contributors to the outreach and engagement mission of the university.
- Ecampus - Online Degrees: Providing learners with worldwide access to a high-quality OSU education via online degree programs.
- Extension Service: Providing practical education to help people solve problems, develop skills and improve their lives.
- Professional and Continuing Education: Offering certificates programs, courses and workshops that meet the continuing education needs of professionals and hobbyists in Oregon and beyond.
- Summer Session: Delivering courses and experiential learning opportunities to students in Corvallis and on the Oregon coast.
