We lead Oregon State's efforts in each of these key areas that contribute to the development of students and their ability to persist, graduate and prepare for employment. 


Health and Well-Being

Our division provides students with safety, security, and a sense of belonging. Recognizing that wellness leads to deeper learning, we support student development of healthy habits. We engage students with their community to reach beyond themselves and create change in the world.

Diversity and Global Consciousness

The diverse identities, perspectives, and experiences found on our global campus enhance student learning at Oregon State University. Students engage in activities that help them reflect on their own identities and cultures, develop empathy, and deepen their commitment to effect social change at OSU and beyond.

Academic Progress and Achievement

Our division facilitates academic skill development and successful navigation of educational pathways. Our services empower students to be active, mindful learners and peer educators during their time at OSU and throughout their lives. 

Career Discovery and Development

We guide students to identify their occupational strengths and interests, develop career readiness, and engage in professional relationships. The transferable skills that students gain through internships, campus employment, and other opportunities will enable them to navigate a future of change with confidence and adaptability.

Community and Civic Engagement

Our division provides opportunities for students to engage in service and reflect on issues of local and global concern. Students cultivate a commitment to the common good and contribute to a better world as engaged citizens and change agents.

Personal and Leadership Development

By exploring their own identities and building self-awareness, students become catalysts for change and ethical leaders of their generation. Our programming helps students strengthen their commitments, mobilize and engage their peers, and develop resiliency to thrive in the face of challenges.
