Corvallis, OR – Oregon State University College of Business has selected Oregon State Credit Union as the recipient of their 2022-2023 Distinguished Business Partner Award. According to the College of Business, the award recognizes a company, business or industry group whose joint efforts have resulted in significant benefits to the professional development of students, its employees or individuals pursuing job training/retraining for future employment.
