What’s new Fall 2020

OSU-Cascades provides students excellence in academics, practical and experiential learning opportunities, and the lifelong advantages of a premier research university.

Student Enrollment

OSU-Cascades’ enrollment is slated to grow to 3,000 to 5,000 students by 2025 to meet state educational attainment goals. The campus will serve students from Central Oregon, as well as Oregon, the U.S. and around the world.

Planning for the Future

Local and regional support and collaboration help shape the academic and physical future of OSU-Cascades. Ongoing input from area businesses and industry is used to develop new and enhance existing degree programs.

Research

A growing faculty includes researchers who are addressing local and global challenges, and serving our communities as part of OSU’s land grant mission.

Impact

Until the OSU-Cascades campus opened in 2016, Bend was the largest metropolitan area in Oregon without a four-year university. At full capacity, OSU-Cascades will support Central Oregon’s educational, economic and cultural goals, and serve as a partner for businesses, non-profits and the community.
