Our diverse and high growth initiatives

Impact Studio's work illustrates the breadth of Oregon State’s mission and facilitates Oregon State's Vision 2030 and Strategic Plan.

Our studio portfolio is built by successfully developing and launching new adjacent opportunities positioned outside of core activities.

 

Our healthy portfolio depends on the following:

  • Strategic alignment with the Provost and Impact Studio Advisory Committee; including selection criteria for new initiatives.
  • Strong partnerships with Oregon State colleges, divisions, centers, and programs to identify, create, and advance promising initiatives.
  • Authentic relationships with talented and diverse individuals from Oregon State and beyond to expand creative capacity.
  • Rapid data-driven decision making to select and advance the most promising initiatives.
  • Selection and adoption of proven methodologies.
  • Efficient and effective Initiative Launch; including Incubate, Pilot, and Scale-up Phases.
