A Story Worth Telling

Our primary role in the college is to share the story of the College’s impact in research, teaching, and outreach. This includes innovations in economic, health, ecological, and community outcomes that serve to improve the lives of all Oregonians and beyond.

Work with Us

The good news is that there is no shortage of great stories to tell. The challenge is in making sure we are telling our story strategically, and consistently – so that key internal and external audiences can understand the impact and significance of our people and our work.

Think of us as the College’s own integrated communications agency. The faculty, staff, alumni, students, and other stakeholders are our clients. To best serve you, we want to be clear about what we can and cannot do, and how to best work with us so that we can help craft your story – and the story of agriculture and natural resources at the college – effectively and strategically.
