About Oregon State University-Cascades - Bend, OR

Growing for Central Oregon and beyond

OSU-Cascades is growing to 3,000 to 5,000 students to meet state education goals. The expanding campus serves students from Central Oregon, Oregon, the U.S. and around the world.

When it opened in 2016, the OSU-Cascades campus fulfilled a 30-year quest for higher education in what had been the largest region in the state without a four-year university. Bend and Central Oregon form Oregon’s fastest growing region and one of its most vibrant economies. Yet the region lags behind the rest of Oregon in higher educational attainment.

With studies showing that most freshmen who attend public universities do so within 50 miles of home, rural families in the region had been falling behind. As OSU-Cascades expands, it has the capacity to transform students’ lives – including first-generation college students, underserved populations, and adults seeking career advancement.

Oregon State University - Cascades is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, one of seven regional accrediting bodies recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
