Mission

Corvallis Community Relations enhances neighborhood livability and inspires a shared responsibility for creating a healthy, inclusive OSU-Corvallis community. Corvallis ranks among the nation's top college towns and best places to live. Through collaboration, communication, education, and celebration, we cultivate C.A.R.E. to help keep it that way.
