Community Programs

Find us in your community | It’s our mission as a land grand university to foster deep community involvement. With programs housed in the CPHHS and Health Extension - also part of the OSU Extension Service - we reach thousands of Oregonians every year, in every county in the state. Our college’s centers and partnerships support health and well-being for children, families and our aging population throughout Oregon. Our outreach programs, including Extension’s, aim to provide people with services and education that helps them lead healthier, more well-rounded lives.
