Beaver Caucus Members:

On Saturday, the State Legislature approved the full $39 million in bonding needed to construct a second academic building on the OSU-Cascades campus in Bend. The funding will be matched by $10 million in donor funds, over $9 million of which has been pledged. During the 2017 session, the Legislature approved $9.5 million in state bonding to support site preparation of undeveloped campus property where the new academic building will be constructed.

This outcome would not have been possible without your help! Thank you for all the time and energy you devoted to ensuring the future of OSU in Central Oregon!

We are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Now4 OSU- Cascades and Central Oregon community leaders in our appeal to legislators to support funding for the expansion of the OSU-Cascades campus. Together we helped the Legislature see the importance of OSU Cascades to Central Oregon and our entire state.

We are also very appreciative of the efforts and leadership of Jock Mills and the OSU Government Relations team throughout the legislative process.

Thank you for lending your voice to support this important project that will meet the academic needs of Central Oregon students and allow the region to continue to thrive. Go Beavs!
