Oregon State University and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry have enjoyed a close partnership since 2016, joining forces to bring together researchers, educators and the public. Researchers across campus have also collaborated with OMSI on the Broader Impacts of their grant proposals.

OMSI hosts its popular Science Communication Fellowship cohort program on OSU’s Corvallis campus each spring. More than 70 students, faculty and staff have completed the training program including many from:

  • College of Science

  • College of Agricultural Sciences
  • College of Forestry
  • College of Public Health and Human Sciences
