Outstanding faculty attract, education and inspire outstanding students. Outstanding faculty fuel innovation and enhance the reputation and reach of the institution.


Oregon State University is committed to fostering the development of our faculty and staff, which in turn, enhances the success of our students, builds the reputation and global impact of our scholarship and research, and improves our institutional climate. Our faculty are a core component of the “ecosystem” of the University. The faculty builds the reputation and distinctiveness of OSU by creating and disseminating impactful research and scholarly output that improves our understanding of the world and changes the lives of those in Oregon and beyond for the better. Our faculty provide transformational educational experiences for undergraduate and graduate students, leading to student engagement and success while at OSU, and providing them with the tools to positively impact their own communities once they leave.
