Celebrate Oregon Research Recognizes Outstanding Scholarly Research and Creative Activities

A handful of events happening Monday, Oct. 29 will celebrate work being conducted by UO faculty every day

Celebrate Oregon Research, a day of UO campus events scheduled for Monday, Oct. 29, will recognize outstanding scholarly research and creative activities conducted by UO faculty every day.

Celebrate Oregon ResearchIt all kicks off with an 8:30 a.m. breakfast hosted by the office for Research, Innovation and Graduate Education (RIGE). Faculty members are invited to enjoy breakfast and conversation with their UO colleagues in the Knight Library Browsing Room. The event, which runs until 10 a.m., will feature brief remarks from UO President Michael Gottfredson and Kimberly Andrews Espy, vice president for research and innovation and dean of the graduate school. The event will celebrate the collective accomplishments of UO faculty members over the last year and create excitement for another great year of UO research and creative activities.

To showcase the outstanding faculty work at UO, RIGE is creating a University Research Wall — a physical representation that highlights the products of our scholarship (e.g., books, monographs, articles, exhibitions, pieces, concerts, etc.) that make an impact around the world.

We encourage faculty members to contribute to this wall. The deadline for electronic submissions has passed. If you'd like to contribute, please bring your page(s) with you to the breakfast and tack it up on the UO Research Wall. Please only include the cover of something that was presented/published/recorded/printed in the AY2011-2012 period. Examples might include a CD cover, a journal or book cover, a poster or front page of a monograph.

Other public events sponsored by RIGE on this special day include:

  • Innovation Seminar Series at 4 p.m. in 322 Klamath with guest speaker Gary Schroth from Illumina, Inc.
  • Inaugural Presidential Research Lecture at 7 p.m. in 110 Willamette by UO Physics Professor James Brau.
