The best way to contact the OSU Board of Trustees is to send an email to this address: [email protected].
Emails can also be sent to trustees at their individual email addresses, which are linked from their bios. As a matter of best practice and consistent with principles of transparency and access, all trustees receive copies of all correspondence received at these addresses (except spam email).
Invitations: Many groups welcome trustees to attend and participate in events and meetings. All invitations to trustees should be sent to [email protected]. The board office will facilitate the distribution of and response to invitations.
Public Comment at Board Meetings: You can also sign up to speak at regular Friday meetings of the full OSU board. See the board's meeting page for upcoming dates and instructions on providing public comment.
