Dan's Observations

Winter 2015

It’s great to see the early signs of spring: rhododendrons, flowering cherries, and the opening of the Oregon Legislature. But as I look at the early blossoms out my window, it’s the legislature that’s on my mind.

The College of Agricultural Sciences is a key partner in meeting the needs of Oregonians in every corner of the state. And, the College is closely aligned with priorities outlined in the Oregon Business Plan: to connect higher education to high-value careers and to put our natural resources to work in a sustainable way. 

With 14 wide-ranging academic programs, the College provides students with hands-on, real-world learning experiences in the fields of food, natural resources, and life sciences. And with faculty stationed on campus and at research stations across Oregon, our college focuses on problems important to Oregon and the world. The state really is our campus. 

In addition, this spring, we welcomed several new leaders into the college. Their stories are included in this issue of The Source. The college is well-positioned to meet the state’s challenges with new ideas and initiatives.

In the coming weeks, the Oregon Legislature will review the state’s budget for the Agricultural Experiment Station, as one of three Oregon State University Statewide Public Service Programs. We have requested some new funds to address Oregon’s challenges. Here’s how we propose to invest those new funds to meet the needs of Oregonians in every corner of the state.
