Dan's Observations

Homecoming 2014

Homecoming 2014 offered us the chance to celebrate the outstanding students, faculty, alumni, and friends of the College of Agricultural Sciences. So much of the college’s impact is due to the achievements of these individuals.

In celebration, I hosted a Dean’s Dinner, the first in many years. It felt like a family Thanksgiving, as we gathered in the stately Memorial Union lounge, warmed by two fireplaces and decorated with the season’s harvest. The dinner itself was a celebration of Oregon-grown specialties—beef, vegetables, hazelnuts, pears, berries—many produced by our family of supporters and stakeholders.

The College is committed to research and teaching of all aspects of food production, from the first roots put down into healthy soil to the value that is added to agricultural products by processing, fermentation, and ingenuity. Food is the handshake between urban and rural Oregon; it brings people together.
