OSU Alumni Association

Vision, Mission and Aspiration

From the Long Range Strategic Plan

Updated June 2014



Be an indispensable part of Oregon State University by engaging alumni and friends in the life, promotion and advancement of the university.


Enrich the lives of alumni and friends by helping them establish lifelong, meaningful and valued relationships with OSU and with each other.


To become known by every Oregon Stater as the gateway to OSU and the alumni community and to meaningfully engage more alumni in membership, programs, and services every year.
Based on its mission, vision and aspiration, OSUAA’s actions will be guided by four strategic initiatives that will drive annual operating plans, will be informed by market feedback from its constituents and will be tracked and measured for success around selected key indicators.  The OSUAA will also adhere to the core values of respecting, informing, and involving alumni and friends of OSU.

The OSUAA Executive Committee and OSUAA staff will review this plan each fiscal year and will prepare and distribute a progress report. This plan is intended to be long-range; it is designed and written with flexibility that allows for adjustments and updating as necessary.
