As an Oregon State University campus, OSU-Cascades adheres to policies and procedures outlined by the OSU Board of Trustees and OSU leadership. For policies and standard operating procedures specific to OSU-Cascades, three Councils form the foundation of our governance structure, with our faculty and staff serving in leadership roles on each. Recommendations made by the Councils are presented to the OSU-Cascades Leadership Team for final adoption. Standing and ad hoc committees provide further representation for members of the campus community, and include the Diversity Committee and Culture Committee.
