Measurements of the production of forward jets from polarized proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=500$ GeV are reported. Our measured jet cross section is consistent with hard scattering expectations. Our measured analyzing power for forward jet production is small and positive, consistent with the existence of partonic orbital angular momentum.
