The goals of OSU-IFSA

The goals of OSU-IFSA are to enrich the formal education of OSU students by giving them a wider, more global perspective on forestry issues. We also encourage mobility and the exchange of information and experience between forestry students from all over the world. Regardless of the emphasis on forestry, the chapter is open to all OSU students and all topics related with conservation and the life sciences find a forum at our club.

The OSU chapter of IFSA was founded in October 2005. IFSA chapters at Oregon State University, Yale, Michigan Tech, and University of Washington make up the membership in the U.S.
