As Vice President for Oregon State University - Cascades, Becky Johnson has full responsibility for the campus, overseeing all aspects of Oregon’s youngest public university, and reporting to Provost Sabah Randhawa. OSU-Cascades is a unique partnership between OSU, Central Oregon Community College, and the University of Oregon that offers an affordable and personal university experience for students in Central Oregon seeking an undergraduate or graduate degree.
Designed for those starting, transferring, or returning to college, OSU-Cascades is located on the campus of COCC in Bend and primarily serves residents of Central Oregon, one of the state’s fastest growing regions. The university offers both OSU and UO degree programs in 11 majors, with 20 degree options, plus three graduate programs. Referred to as Oregon’s ‘transfer university’, OSU-Cascades is an ideal next step after community college and for returning students. The campus also welcomes high school students, who can be admitted as freshmen and, under the guidance of an OSU-Cascades adviser, take lower-division courses at COCC then transition to OSU-Cascades to complete their degree. Student opportunities include research and internship programs with Central Oregon’s business, government and non-profit communities, as well as international programs in more than 80 countries.
