Oregon State University has a compelling strategic vision – to create healthy people, a healthy planet and a healthy economy through an aggressive research agenda, excellent educational programs, and community engagement. Our growing student population on and off campus, expanding research profile, and a service mission that reaches across Oregon and around the world creates a dynamic environment in which technology must play a critical and transformative role for the University to achieve its goals.

Information Services is helping to realize the University's strategic vision by:

  • Supplying instructors and students with technology tools that enhance learning and engagement in the academic community
  • Equipping the OSU community with the network and collaboration tools needed to enhance scholarship and enable collaboration between the Corvallis campus and programs and sites across the state and around the world
  • Building a strong foundation of technology infrastructure that can support advanced research in disciplines from the arts and humanities to sciences and engineering
  • Offering administrative systems that enable efficient and effective business processes

As the University is changing, Information Services is evolving as well. We have a strong record of providing reliable and secure systems, and we're building on this legacy by leveraging IT investments for a cost-effective enterprise, adopting best practices for technology and service delivery, and collaborating widely on and off campus with OSU, higher education and industry partners to find the best solutions to meet the University's challenges.

This website offers a gateway to Information Services at OSU and I invite you to explore it to learn more about the services we offer.
