Vision, Mission and Values

College of Health


Lifelong health and well-being for every person, every family, every community in Oregon and beyond


Through integrated education, research and outreach, we advance scientific discovery and implementation of ideas to improve population health and prepare the next generation of globally minded public health and human sciences professionals. As part of a land grant university, we connect our science to the policies and practices in communities to increase people’s quality of life and capacity to thrive.


We share the values that guide Oregon State University: Accountability, Diversity, Integrity, Respect, and Social responsibility.

To these values, we add our dedication to:

  • Equity: We are committed to advancing lifelong health and well-being for all.
  • Care and Compassion: With compassion and understanding, we commit to caring for ourselves and others.
  • Innovation: We embrace innovative approaches to addressing challenges and opportunities.
  • Continuous Improvement: We continually strive toward high standards by optimizing individual and collective strengths.
  • Collaboration: We promote a supportive, collegial and inclusive learning and work environment.
