The Construction Education Foundation (CEF) was established in 1975 to support the OSU Construction Engineering Management program. As a part of the OSU Foundation, CEF funds provide support to CEM students, staff, faculty, and programs.  

CEF Mission

To enhance or initiate programs at Oregon State University which will be beneficial to the construction industry, the public that it serves, and students who are preparing for professional careers in construction.
