November 2, 2015 — In this month’s video, Scott Reed introduces O&E’s new Communications & Marketing Manager who is charged with communicating the purpose, activities and accomplishments of the Division, which ultimately will result in strong stakeholder support. He also reveals why the focus on community outreach is vital.

Scott believes: “The engagement trajectory we’re on will change the university, and everyone in the Division is key to that. In the spirit of co-creation and reciprocity, community engagement makes the university better.”

Please take a few minutes to view the video and share your favorite OSU youth outreach and engagement story. Topic suggestions for future First Monday videos are also welcome. What do you want to know about University Outreach and Engagement?

  1. Master Gardeners are very active with youth throughout Lincoln County.

    The Yaquina Bay Lighthouse Garden project with our local elementary school is celebrating the 20th year of the projects existence. 2nd graders are being introduced to edible and pollinator gardening from seed starting to planting to harvest. All produce is donated to our local Food Pantry.

    But our community youth involvement doesn’t stop there-we have partnered with 4H to have activities for Youth and Families at the Lincoln County Fair, Lights on After School, and activities in our demonstration gardens. The list goes on.

  2. I’m curious to hear what current youth programs O&E provides. I was very involved in 4H growing up (poultry, sewing, even some odd ones like table setting).

  3. Thank you, Elizabeth. Juntos is a great success story from Open Campus. It encourages Latino families to think about education as a family goal. A similar program will reach out to the Native American community as well. Goal is to encourage completion of high school and continuing onto higher education. We’ll report other youth stories.
