The land grant mission of Oregon State University is to promote economic, social, cultural and environmental progress for the people of Oregon, the nation and the world. The university advances this mission through its commitment to open access of information, sharing of research, honoring academic freedom, and by engaging in global research, teaching and outreach partnerships with faculty, universities and private sector partners.

One of OSU's priorities in advancing our mission is enabling faculty and students to engage in global discovery, learning, and outreach and engagement through supportive processes and procedures. The Research Office has developed a set of resources to guide faculty and staff in Global Engagement Compliance. The Decision Tree provides guidance for locating the campus resources that can assist with your particilar needs. Contact our office with any questions not resolved by these resources.
