What is the Campus Vision?

Campus Vision is a broadly focused and comprehensive process that will create a framework of guiding principles, values and goals for future improvements on OSU’s Corvallis campus. The Campus Vision is in support of the university’s Strategic Plan 4.0 goals and it will take into account numerous considerations, including accessibility, natural resources and open spaces, connectivity, enrollment projections and infrastructure needs identified in OSU’s 10-year capital forecast.    

Why create a vision?

The university continues to operate in changing and challenging times. The Campus Vision will help maintain and communicate a focus on what’s important to students, faculty, staff, community residents and the people of Oregon and how the campus can best serve them.

How will the vision be used?

The Campus Vision’s guiding principles will serve as a new tool for assuring that future projects, whether redevelopment, new development, or infrastructure improvements, are aligned with the university’s strategic plan. The Campus Vision may also inform updates to internal OSU planning efforts and construction standards.

Who approves the vision?

Similar to the university’s strategic plan, following extensive outreach and input, OSU’s president will approve the Campus Vision and the university’s Board of Trustees will be presented the plan by OSU administrators to review and accept.
