Meet the 2015 Distinguished Teaching Awards winners

Outstanding teachers aren’t hard to find at the University of Oregon. What can be hard is deciding which ones are among the finest.

That job is taken on each year when the university looks to recognize the best of the best, the teachers who are at the head of the class in more ways than one. These faculty members embrace the UO’s quest for innovation. They stretch beyond the limit. They answer “what if” with “let’s do it.”

UO sustainability goes into the closet

The University of Oregon is helping turn trash into togs and saving old clothes from the landfill as part of its effort to keep campus green.

Two recent additions to the university's sustainability portfolio are the introduction of branded clothing made from discarded plastic soda bottles and the conversion of castoff uniforms into rags used by campus repair shops. Both are part of the ongoing efforts to reduce, reuse and recyle.
