Institutional Approach

Oregon State University's Office of Community Engaged Learning provides a structured platform for students to actively participate in community projects centered around sustainability and social justice. This serves their core institutional goals of fostering the development of community-engaged future leaders. Collaborating with a diverse network of over 100 societal partners, the office facilitates peer-to-peer mentoring and learning. Additionally, they offer an online "Pathways of Public Service & Civic Engagement Diagnostic Tool" to assist students in determining their preferred approach to making a positive impact within their communities. Complementing these efforts, Oregon State University advances its sustainability agenda through three distinct offices, each focusing on different areas: the Sustainability Office, Campus Recycling, and the Community Engagement & Leadership center.
