Member Duties : Oregon State University-Cascades serves the needs of Central Oregon, a mostly rural region with low rates of college attainment. Our VISTA will launch a student success program for transfer students to increase retention rates and ultimately graduation rates of economically disadvantaged students transferring from COCC to OSU-Cascades beginning with Oregon Promise students transferring fall 2019. The VISTA will improve low-income transfer student academic success via a Transfer Student Bridge program. This program will increase the retention of transfer students at OSU-Cascades to graduation.
