Text of OSU President Ed Ray's state of the university address

January 30th, 2015

OSU President Ed Ray gave a state-of-the-university address Friday to 700 alumni and supporters at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland. Here is the text:
Today's update on the state of the university will highlight the incredible changes occurring at Oregon State - achievements that are providing world-class teaching, research and service to advance  environmental progress, health and economic prosperity for all Oregonians - as well as our nation and the world.
Oregon State University is Oregon's statewide university.
OSU was created in 1868 to serve the needs of Oregon by bringing higher education and economic opportunity to the great people of this state.
"Service to others" is our mission.
And economic development for Oregon is part of our DNA.
147 years later ... we are intently focused on improving how we fulfill our mission as Oregon's land grant university.
