President's Dinner 2010

An Historic Moment for an Amazing University: Celebrating a Campaign Milestone

On October 22, 2010, at the annual President’s Dinner University leaders announced that gifts from more than 53,000 donors had pushed The Campaign for OSU past its original $625 million goal, almost a year ahead of schedule. Energized by this tremendous momentum and inspired by opportunities presented in the university’s strategic plan, campus leaders announced an increased campaign goal -- $850 million. The Campaign will run through 2013 and will help propel OSU to a new level of distinction and global leadership.

Alumni, parents, and friends have had an enormous impact on Oregon State University, providing more than $100 million for student scholarships, supporting OSU’s world-class faculty, building state-of-the-art facilities, and enhancing innovative programs across campus.

Join us as we continue to support OSU’s transformative impact on students, Oregon, and the world.

Campaign Priorities

The final phase of The Campaign for OSU will focus on investments that advance the goals described in the university’s strategic plan, and support OSU’s drive to be recognized as a leading international research institution.

Campaign donors will help our university reach new levels of excellence, particularly in three core areas of distinction: advancing the science of sustainable earth ecosystems, improving human health and wellness, and promoting economic growth and social progress.

Major initiatives for the remainder of the campaign include:

  • Merit-based scholarships that help make OSU the destination of choice for high-achieving, diverse students from Oregon and beyond
