OPAL MISSION

Our mission is to inform and improve public policy in Oregon and beyond through independent, objective, nonpartisan policy analysis conducted by OSU graduate students on major social, economic, ecological, and political issues. To accomplish this, we will draw upon the extensive research capacity of Oregon State University. 

OPAL VISION

We will train graduate students and engage faculty in a regionally-acclaimed knowledge enterprise that raises the standards of public policy debates and decisions and integrates social, economic, and ecological sustainability.
