Breakthroughs in Science: Houston

June 25th, 2008

A BIG thank-you goes out to College of Science Board Member, Rusty Gorman (Zoology ’73) and Ruth Spence for hosting our Breakthroughs in Science: Solutions for a Changing World event in Houston on May 9.

The event, held at The Grove Restaurant in Downtown Houston’s Discovery Green Park, was well attended by College of Science alumni in the Houston area. Guests were given an update about OSU’s Capital Campaign by Dean Sherm Bloomer. Dr. Aaron Wolf, Geosciences Professor at OSU and international expert on water resources policy and middle east geopolitics, gave a presentation entitled, “Conflict and Cooperation over Shared Waters.”

Rusty Gorman summed up the evening by pointing out the global impact of Dr. Wolf’s research. Rusty went on to say that Dr. Wolf is one of many Oregon State professors helping to create solutions for the issues facing the world today. He concluded his remarks by thanking all guests for attending and encouraging everyone at the event to get involved with Oregon State and support the University as he and Ruth have chosen to do.

Rusty and Ruth, we are grateful for your generous gifts of time and financial support. Thank you!
