Message from the Associate Dean


As far as the quality of engineering instruction, Oregon State is one of the top schools the teaching here is second to none. I firmly believe this, because I've seen other programs. We will continue to build on that excellence.

The key priorities as associate dean for academic and student affairs:

  • Increase students' experiential learning opportunities through service and overseas experiences
  • Expand students' global awareness
  • Boost student retention rates
  • Build a more diverse student population
  • Foster deeper connections with industry to expand internship opportunities
  • Advance student success in national competitions
  • Increase the number of students qualifying for the professional school
