Strengthening Education and Employment for Diverse Students


The College of Forestry is an inclusive community that values and respects all of our students and their contributions to the diversity that we enjoy in the College.  SEEDS is a virtual community within the College whose mission is to support students' academic and career successes. We do this by promoting and supporting mentored experiential learning, and by helping students to network and find resources.  Often we provide programs that support cohorts within the College who may be underserved in higher education or in the community and who would uniquely benefit from SEEDS experiences.

We welcome involvement from the forestry industry, agencies, and community to help support our students' employment and educational goals and we offer the following sponsorship opportunities.  If you would like to help support our students in these endeavors please contact the OSU Foundation and reference our Experiential Learning Fund.
