E.R. Jackman Friends and Alumni is the Colleges membership organization for our alumni and friends. This group of dedicated volunteers actively plans, participates in, and supports student programs, alumni relations, and friend building on behalf of the College.
We have a small and nimble board that works year-round on committees to support students. Here is small sampling of the things we do to create opportunities for students and provide learning experiences beyond the walls of a classroom…
Funding a club field trip to a prominent Northwest business, allowing students to hear from leaders about challenges facing the industry.
Providing scholarships to students who might typically ‘fall through the cracks’.
Supporting summer internships for students in Oregon, the U. S. as well as outside the U.S., such as studying cheese-making in France or wine-making in New Zealand.
Sponsoring club outreach events like OSU Dairy Club’s Beaver Youth Day, which invites students from third grade through high school to come to campus and learn about fitting techniques.
Learn more about who E. R. Jackman was and why we have an entire organization proudly bearing his name.

Kim Bellingar "I love OSU and the College of Agricultural Sciences, because that’s where I met my wonderful hubby! I also believe that ERJ is doing wonderful things in being able to provide hard-working students within the College of Agricultural Sciences and a chance to expand their learning beyond the classroom, and take advantage of truly incredible opportunities through clubs and internship programs. I benefitted massively from my experiences with the CAS clubs, ERJ scholarship program, and want to see others have the same opportunity."
Karen Withers “Since my teen years I dreamt of working in International Agriculture. Without the support of the ER Jackman funding that may not have come true. I am very thankful for their financial assistance but even more so the encouragement and communication from my donor who stayed in touch with me beyond my undergraduate years. The College of Ag. Sciences and the ER Jackman Friends and Alumni are amazing organizations changing lives of students every single year!”
