A community coalition supporting OSU-Cascades’ Westside Campus

WHY NOW?


Today, we are creating an educational legacy that will shape our future – the establishment of a four-year university in Central Oregon. As a collective, we already agree that access to higher education is a critical component of a strong, sustainable economy. An urban-integrated campus in the heart of Bend will:

  • Create an evolutionary model for higher education that adapts and responds to the needs of students and businesses
  • Educate our children and provide a skilled workforce for expanding employers
  • Nurture cultural diversity
  • Offer accessible, affordable degrees
  • Cultivate economic innovation and stability
