Please join us for the 2018 College of Science Teaching and Advising Awards Ceremony to recognize exceptional teaching and advising, hallmarks of faculty excellence and the foundation of student success. We look forward to seeing everyone at this annual winter celebration followed by a reception of wine, beer,hors d’oeuvres and good cheer.

We will be announcing the following awards at the ceremony:

•  Fred Horne Award for Excellence in Teaching Science
Olaf Boedtker Award for Excellence in Academic Advising
•  Loyd F. Carter Awards for Outstanding and Inspirational Teaching in Science

Welcome TEAM MATH!

We have a special presentation by Team Math, a group of mathematics faculty who came together for four months for the initial development work to redesign the curricula of introductory math courses and effectively to transform college algebra. Since last spring, they have seen impressive results with solid improvements in student retention, performance and engagement. They will share the technology, active learning approaches and student performance measurements they used to improve student success. The project received funding from a Gates Foundation grant through the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities.

RSVP by February 16!

Please join us to celebrate excellence in teaching and advising that contribute to our students’ success in science.

To make accommodations for disabilities, call 541-737-4811 one week in advance.

We are pleased to announce the annual College of Science + Honors College Research Mixer happening this Friday, February 2, from 3-5 p.m. in LINC 228. This is your chance to get motivated high-achieving students in your lab to work with you and your team.


Bring a slide to present your work, and your best one-minute spiel to excite and inspire undergraduates about the research in your lab. After presentations there will be an hour to interact with students eager to work with you.


Doing research is one of the most important ways to improve a student’s educational experience in college. The outcomes are powerful and positive because faculty can engage in broader impact projects, mentor future scientists, or at least get some SOPs standardized!


Last year we had a great showing of faculty, who opened up spots in their labs to Honors College students. Don’t miss your opportunity. Contact Gabrielle Jameswith your RSVP or for any questions you may have.
