Dan's Observations

Helping to shape research, education, and outreach for the 21st century

As we celebrate the 125th year of Oregon’s Agricultural Experiment Station, I think  about how our college is helping to shape research, education, and outreach for the 21st century.

For example, because we can access and deliver a vast amount of information electronically, our education increasingly emphasizes hands-on learning through experience. We listen when employers say they want graduates with skills in communication and teamwork that complement a strong foundation of disciplinary science. A degree from the College of Agricultural Sciences means knowing how to analyze information, discover new knowledge and how to apply it toward solving real-world problems.
