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 Campus Culture Committee.

Operations Council

The Operations Council develops guiding principles, policies and procedures that move campus infrastructure and operations toward fiscal, operational and environmental sustainability. The council serves as a forum for operations groups within OSU-Cascades.
