Our strategy,
their success.

Here's how we help

Our programs and services provide leadership training, career development and cultural exploration. From developing transferable skills to engaging as leaders to connecting with diverse teams, students apply what they are learning in classes to real-life situations. These experiences equip students with the tools and support they need to complete their degrees and build a better world. 

There are lots of ways you can get involved. Check out some of the opportunities listed below — with your assistance we will help students succeed academically, persist on their educational paths and graduate with confidence.

If you would like to get involved in one of the below opportunities, contact Executive Assistant Erin Wirkkala. For information about how to give to these areas, contact Mike Moran from the OSU Foundation

Transformative Learning

Learning experiences that shape every student's college career

In student affairs, we design programs and services that transform students and promote success both on campus and after graduation. We prepare, develop and inspire students to change themselves here so they can go on to change the world out there. You can help, too:

Thriving Communities

Supporting community, providing access for student success

We support students on their educational paths — through resources, services and programming that help students face challenges and find community — so they can focus on their studies and work toward graduation. Here are some ways you can get involved:

Career Development

Preparing for a lifetime of success

From their first day at OSU, the Career Development Center aims to help students strengthen their occupational skills and build a network of meaningful relationships in support of a lifetime of professional success. Research shows that 87% of students choose to go to college because they believe it will lead to a better job. We create opportunities for students to grow professionally. Below are some ways you can help in this process:

  • Speak on a panel about your career path.
  • Take part in an informational interview with a student or group.
  • Host a group of students on a job trek at your workplace.
  • Participate in student networking events.
  • Hire an OSU intern at your company.
