Public Notice: 

Oregon State University’s Board of Trustees will hold a special board meeting on Tuesday, June 7, to consider the appointment and employment agreement of Oregon State University’s next president.

The meeting begins at 10 a.m. in the Memorial Union Horizon Room on the OSU Corvallis campus.

The candidate under consideration for appointment will be introduced publicly at the June board meeting. If appointed, the candidate will succeed OSU Interim President Becky Johnson.

Following the board meeting, trustees will host an outdoor reception in the Student Experience Center Plaza adjoining the MU from 10:45 to 11:45 a.m. to welcome the president-elect. The reception is open to the public.

Action by the board in the meeting will conclude a national presidential search launched in late 2021 with the formation of a 17-member search advisory committee, the holding of community listening sessions, and the development of a presidential leadership profile to guide the recruitment process. The recruitment included an extensive interview process of candidates that involved the search advisory committee and trustees. On May 23 and 24, finalist candidates were invited to OSU’s Corvallis campus for final interviews with the board of trustees, community conversations and public forum meetings with each finalist. The search process included the opportunity for community members to provide web input to the board on each finalist candidate and also included extensive background checks and due diligence on each finalist.

“Oregon State’s next president will lead a remarkable university that enjoys tremendous momentum and provides incredible impact in Oregon, nationally and globally,” said Kirk Schueler, chair of OSU’s Board of Trustees. “This significant momentum and impact is being felt throughout Oregon, the nation and the world. And will only grow with the leadership of the university’s next president. OSU’s next president also will continue to contribute to a university community that is advancing diversity, equity and inclusive excellence.”

The meeting is open to the public. The meeting agenda and link to view the meeting remotely can be found by accessing the OSU Board of Trustees Meetings webpage. If special accommodation is required, please contact (541) 737-8260 or at least 48 hours in advance.
