Lane Community College

Monday at 5 p.m. in the OSPIRG office. The OSPIRG Office is located in the basement of the Center Building. Our room number is CEN 021. 

Campus Organizer: Marcella Buser -

We are LCC students' public interest group.

OSPIRG is a statewide, non-partisan, student-directed and funded organization that works on issues like environmental protection, affordable education, and fighting poverty. We train students in grassroots and political organizing skills so they can run campaigns that make a huge impact.

We give students skills to make a difference and get their voice heard both here on campus, and also in Salem and Washington DC where political decisions are made. We’ve been able to do this because LCC students vote every three years to fund an OSPIRG chapter. Because of this support, we get real results. For example, we recently helped cut over $179 million in health care waste in Oregon by pushing back when health insurance companies tried to raise premiums. And in Eugene, we helped educate 2,000 K-12 kids about sustainability. 

We offer volunteer and leadership opportunities to make a difference on all these issues. Volunteers can make a huge difference on our campaigns and learn skills in grassroots organizing, media outreach, lobbying and advocacy, and event planning. Get involved today!
