Oregon State leadership says the school remains committed to the Pac-12.

Oregon State University President Jayathi Murthy and athletic director Scott Barnes released statements on Friday.

“Oregon State University joins with other Pac-12 members in reaffirming our commitment to the long-term strength and vitality of the conference,” Murthy’s statement reads. “We are united by our shared values, our passion for the highest level of intercollegiate athletic competition, our leadership roles as Tier 1 research universities and our support for student-athletes’ academic and athletic excellence.”

Barnes also signaled a long-term commitment.

“Oregon State Athletics trusts that the Pac-12 will secure a media rights deal that will strongly benefit the institutions that are remaining loyal to this conference,” Barnes said in a school release. “All of us at Oregon State will continue to work hard and diligently to continue the long-term membership and success of our athletic department at a national level.”

OSU’s statements follow Colorado’s decision to leave the Pac-12 for the Big 12. The Big 12 is reportedly targeting Arizona and other “Four Corners” schools for expansion.
