The land grant mission of Oregon State University includes promoting 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 to information, honoring academic freedom, and by engaging in global research, education, teaching, and outreach partnerships with faculty, universities, and private sector partners.

Partnerships and Agreements

Global Engagement - Office of the Provost provides services for establishing non-binding letters of collaboration and partners with other administrative units to produce memoranda of understanding (MOUs) for binding agreements such as study abroad, internships, and others.

Global Engagement Compliance

While retaining our commitment to open access research and global collaboration, we also prioritize transparency and compliance with federal guidelines. The Global Engagement Compliance site provides guidance on how to ensure ethical and legal compliance as you conduct global research and activity.
