CORVALLIS, Ore. – The Oregon State University Board of Trustees will hold 10 listening sessions April 30 and May 1 around Oregon to gather input from the public and university stakeholders regarding OSU’s strengths, the challenges the university will face over the next decade, and the attributes that the university’s next president should possess.

The sessions will be held in Corvallis, Portland, Bend and Newport as the OSU trustees begin a national search to replace Ed Ray as he steps down in June 2020 as Oregon State’s current president.

The dates and locations of the sessions are available online. Listening sessions held on OSU’s Corvallis campus will be live-streamed and be available for later viewing. Input also can be provided online. For accommodations, call 541-737-3449 or by e-mailing [email protected]
