As the 2022-2023 academic year nears its end, it brings me great joy and pride to reflect upon the accomplishments of this past spring.
We added new leadership to the team with Dr. Sulikowski joining as the Director of the Coastal Oregon Marine Experiment Station.
We secured new grants and funding to launch exciting research initiatives, most recently with the opportunity to co-lead a $30 million USDA regional food business center.
We celebrated Dam Proud Day with the most participants and most amount raised of any college at the University!
And we had the opportunity to recognize our talented students, faculty and staff at our annual Celebrating Excellence event.
If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Art about Agriculture 40th Anniversary exhibit, it is currently showing at the Giustina Gallery on the Corvallis campus with plans to travel to the Portland’5 Centers for the Arts in November. This exhibit celebrates the powerful bridge between art and science and is a unique strength at our College.
And for those who are graduating this spring, congratulations! We are so proud of you and what you have accomplished. You are forever a part of the College of Agricultural Sciences and our never-ending mission to make tomorrow better for everyone.
