From a Brownfield to a Community Asset: The Expansion of OSU-Cascades in Bend
Oregon State University - Cascades opened the first 10-acres of its new campus near downtown Bend in 2016, fulfilling a 30-year community quest for a university presence in a region that lags behind the rest of Oregon in higher educational attainment, and was the largest area in the state without a four-year university. Over the coming decades, OSU-Cascades will expand, developing a 128-acre campus for up to 5,000 students. Learn how the transformation of the university-owned properties — a former pumice mine and former county demolition landfill — into a permanent community asset is one of the most innovative university development projects in the country.
