Welcome to Summer Term 2020

Spotted Bat Project – Volunteers Needed!

There is currently an opportunity to volunteer for the Spotted Bat Project in Central Oregon. This project is being coordinated by Sara Rose, Human and Ecosystem Resiliency and Sustainability Lab, OSU Cascades Campus. Volunteers are being asked to conduct hour-long auditory surveys of spotted bats around Central Oregon. It’s easy, flexible and there are over 100 locations to choose from. Surveys can be done anytime in June, July or August. You can read more about this project and how you can volunteer on the Spotted Bat Project website.

Congratulations to our graduating students and this year’s award recipients!

Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium

The Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium will take place virtually on September 14th and 15th.

The Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium (SURS) is an annual showcase for OSU undergraduates to present their research, scholarship, and creative projects to the broader university community.  Undergraduates from all academic disciplines, in all years of study and all stages of research, will present on a diversity of topics, approaches, and interests at OSU.

Due to changes in campus operations, and with respect for our need to remain socially distant, we will be changing the format of SURS to a virtual symposium. Even with this change, students will have the opportunity to share their research with the broader OSU community and receive questions and comments about their work. We hope this event will bring our community closer during this time of social distancing.

The deadline for students to register to present at SURS is August 10th at 11:59 PM. They can apply here.
