Campus Expansion Advisory Committee

Oregon State University - Cascades formed the Campus Expansion Advisory Committee (CEAC) in April 2013 to help inform and gather input from the Central Oregon community as it expands to a four-year university on a campus in Bend. As of December 2014, OSU-Cascades had incorporated 92 of the CEAC's 115 recommendations.

Co-chaired by Matt Shinderman, a senior instructor of natural resources and the faculty lead for the sustainability degree program, and Jodie Barram, former Bend City Councilor, CEAC provided expertise on important issues OSU-Cascades and the community face as the new campus develops in West Bend, including transportation and parking, infrastructure, business partnerships, neighborhood livability and sustainability.
