osu board of trustees

The Board of Trustees meets four times per year, and may meet more frequently as required to effectively govern the university. Meetings of the Board and its committees are open to the public.

Agenda, meeting materials, and audio recordings for each meeting are posted below as soon as practical. For each meeting hosted at the Memorial Union in Corvallis, audio and live streaming are available. Click on the “agenda & materials” link under each meeting to find instructions.

The Board of Trustees welcomes public comment. Members of the public have two options for providing comment to the Board of Trustees:

  1. A public comment opportunity will be provided before the Board votes on each action item listed on the full Board meeting agenda. A general public comment period is also provided after the standing reports, near the start of the meeting. Commenters must sign up in advance of the public comment period. To sign up by email before the meeting, please contact Marcia Stuart. Please include your name, email address, affiliation, and phone number, and the subject of your comments. Alternately, commenters may sign up at the meeting. Preference will be given to those who sign up in advance. Accommodation requests should be made at least 48 hours in advance to the Office of the Board of Trustees, Marcia Stuart, 541-737-3449.
  2. Individuals who wish to provide written comment related to a specific item on the agenda may do so by sending materials electronically to trustees@oregonstate.edu; delivering materials to the Board Office; or mailing materials to the Board Office.

Written material must be received at least two business days in advance of the meeting at which the agenda topic is scheduled. Material should be no more than three pages in length. Please note that documents provided to the Board may be subject to disclosure under Public Records Law. The Chair and Board Secretary will determine whether and, if so, when, submitted material is appropriate for dissemination to trustees and posting on the Board’s website based on relevant Board actions. Written comments submitted to the Board not directed to a specific agenda item will be handled as general correspondence. The Board Chair will direct the distribution and response to these comments.
