The Faculty Recognition and Awards Committee is now accepting nominations for the awards they are responsible for reviewing and selecting – see the solicitation letter.Criteria and nomination forms associated with these awards are online; nominations will be accepted through noon on March 22. Guidelinesto assist those preparing nomination packets are available online. For further information, contact Vickie Nunnemaker.
The Learning Outcome, Criteria, and Rationale (LOCR) Committee invites the university community to provide feedback on the LOCRs faculty have created through a listening session. Participants will learn about the LOCR creation process, preview LOCR drafts, engage in conversation and provide feedback. Your college’s participation and collaboration will help inform the final LOCRs we propose to the Faculty Senate for adoption. All listening sessions will be held on Zoom. Registration is required, though participants can register at the time of the meeting and still gain access. Feb. 6, 2-3:30 p.m. and Feb. 7, 1-2:30 p.m.
March 6-10 is Open Education Week. Oregon State is on a mission to lower the cost of learning for students. Will you join us? Open Education Week is a virtual celebration that raises awareness of global efforts to make learning more “open” — that is, more affordable and accessible to students everywhere. Learn more about this week of online events.
Check out the OSU Libraries’ free Graduate Student & Faculty Winter Term Workshops. Of particular note are Illustrator for Scientific Figures, Intro to Git, and Zotero. Registration is required for online workshops and encouraged for in-person sessions. For complete session descriptions, visit the workshop calendar page. Can’t make it to a session? Some of the sessions have online tutorials or recordings:

Projects proposed to this solicitation must be directed by a team of at least two Senior Personnel with complementary expertise. The proposed research must involve a collaborative and iterative ‘closed-loop’ process wherein theory guides computational simulation, computational simulation guides experiments, and experimental observation further guides theory. The integrated research activities could involve some combination of:
- Strategies to advance fundamental knowledge related to materials design and manufacturability through testing methodology, which may include novel synthetic approaches, innovative processing, or advanced characterization techniques.
Theory, computation/simulation, and modeling that leverage machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), data mining, or sparse approximation to predict behavior or assist in simplifying the analysis of multidimensional input data.
- Automated, high-throughput, and/or autonomous experimentation, including cyber-physical systems, that streamline and optimize the search of a materials space.
- Validation through synthesis, growth, processing, characterization, and/or device demonstration.
Students invited to request textbooks: The Basic Needs Center is stocking their Textbook Lending Library and invites students experiencing financial barriers to request books for next term in exchange for getting first priority to check them out through this free program. Submissions are due by Dec. 15 via this online form. For questions: 1030 SW Madison Ave., 541-737-3747, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Family Resource Center Kid’s Gift Closet helps provide gifts for children of OSU students during holidays and celebrations. Thanks to our generous sponsors, each year’s gift closet is a huge success and we have many grateful families. You can give in a variety of ways: Amazon registry that ships directly to FRC, the Toy Factory in downtown Corvallis (you can leave the gift in our donation box), or you can bring in any new and unwrapped gifts to the Champinefu Lodge donation box at the front desk. We will be collecting gifts until Dec. 6. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about this program, please contact email@example.com.
