College faculty received funding from 95 research grants and contracts during the past fiscal year totaling $42.8 million—a 30 percent increase from last year and a new single-year record for external funding.
Thanks to a $16 million estate gift for scholarships, scores of high-achieving UO students on the path to becoming public school teachers will be spending less time worrying about debt and more time focused on becoming outstanding educators.
Summer has given way to the wet weather and bright colors of fall, as we finally present this edition of Education Matters. It has been an inordinately busy time at the COE, with major announcements like our external funding record and the game-changing $500M Knight Campus gift. We are making great progress toward our goals in the UO Campaign, but as always, your support helps raise our profile and our accessibility for students. Please enjoy, and have a safe and healthy fall season.
Education Matters is distributed each term. Use the e-mail link below to contact the editor.
