The OSU Leadership Team are OSU Extension faculty that provide administrative oversight of the program and work with a Program Council to provide strategic leadership and implementation.
The OELP Program Council is a “working” council comprised of 12-15 members representing organizations and stakeholders across Oregon with a strong interest in Environmental Literacy. The Council works in partnership with the OSU leadership team to develop a strategic plan, sets priority projects in each identified focus area, and implements priority projects. Council members are selected by the leadership team through an application process.
These are teams of 2-3 individuals from an area of the state that bring together their local networks agencies, organizations, tribes, business and others who deliver or engage in K-12 environmental education programming. They are promoting regional collaboration in sharing information and resources, assessing needs, and providing training.
