Due to the growing uncertainty of the impact of COVID-19 a decision has been made to postpone this event. We regret to inform you that the 4th Annual OSU Brand Symposium, hosted at Oregon State University has been cancelled at this time. If you have questions please contact Conference Services at conferences@oregonstate.edu. We thank you in advance for your patience during a time of high communications volume with our team.

To facilitate the on-going sharing of information about the virus, we have added a link on the OSU home page that provides detailed and up-to-date coronavirus information; links to OSU, local, state and federal resources; updates on the latest federal travel restrictions; and previous university communications about the virus and other information.

Oregon State University is committed to the health and well-being of the communities we engage and serve. We strive to demonstrate a culture of care for all, particularly during times of uncertainty and disruption and recognize the importance of proactive planning and frequent communication to inform and provide for an effective response to an infectious disease outbreak.
