OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY
Previous story Next story"

Welcome to the OSU Drupal Collaboration and Information site

Oregon State University is into Drupal in a BIG way. Not only does our Open Source Lab host drupal.org but we use Drupal for a large number of our campus websites, including the OSU home page.

OSU has been with Drupal since early on, starting with Drupal 4. Many of our production sites, all throughout our various networks, have been upgraded through several major versions. Currently most of our sites are using Drupal 6 with a few early adopters on Drupal 7. 

Our university has a centralized version of Drupal that is distributed and maintained by Central Web Services, with design support from Web Communications, but we also have several different organizations that run their own flavor of Drupal, including:

  • College of Engineering
  • College of Forestry
  • College of Science
  • Crop and Soil Science
  • Extension & Experiment Station Communication Services
  • Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing

It's our belief that, as whole, we all stand to benefit from the shared experiences of all of our groups.  Therefore, in the true spirit of Open Source, it's our mission to collaborate, improve, and innovate upon the use of Drupal, in its various forms, across our campus.

If you're an OSU Drupal developer, architect, or site manager, you may be interested in visiting our collaborative community site at http://community.drupal.oregonstate.edu - all you need is an ONID.  We look forward to seeing you!
