The OSU IT Slack community consists of over 200 members from Information Services and other IT units at Oregon State.


Please contact one of the OSU IT Slack administrators if you have a question, or an issue that you would like to discuss. You can contact us directly through Slack or by email.

Membership to the OSU IT Slack community is currently open to ANY employee (faculty, staff, courtesy) of Oregon State University or an associated group of Oregon State University (such as a foundation or nonprofit) who has an interest in IT at Oregon State.

Right now students of Oregon State University are allowed to join on a case-by-case basis. For the most part, however, this community is for employees.

Employees who are also students are welcome to join.

At this time, membership is open to anyone with an “” email address.


The OSU IT Slack Community is a safe, fun place for all of our members, and we want to keep it that way. Respect, sharing, and teamwork are values we believe in, and that should be applied across the collective OSU IT community.

Expected Behaviors

  • Offer criticism and feedback in an honest, respectful, and kind way.
  • Be supportive and offer guidance when requested. The value in our community is everyone’s participation.

Unacceptable Behaviors

  • Any behavior that would fall under Oregon State University’s Discrimination and Discriminatory Harassment Policy guidelines.
  • Not providing feedback in a constructive, actionable way.


The OSU IT admins can revoke membership of any member, at any time. Admins will contact that member and explain why he or she is losing membership.

Above All

Have fun, and use the community in whatever way works for you. Make fun of products – Banner, the Catalog – but don’t make fun of people.

Have a question? Direct message or email any of the OSU IT community admins.
