Congratulations to our new Associate Professors, Hui Zhang and Anne Bahde! And to her promotion to Professor, Anne-Marie Deitering!
Chris Petersen is leading an OSULP Community Interview Project. We are attempting to use oral history to build community and capture institutional knowledge about our organization. All faculty and staff working in OSULP are invited to participate as interviewees. We will also be reaching out to recent retirees as well as a selection of our current student workers. If you’re interested, please fill out this brief survey to sign up for the interviews. The interviews will require about one hour of your time and will be conducted in such a way as to minimize the anxiety that can sometimes be a part of the oral history setting.
OPB’s Oregon Experience will be airing in Corvallis on June 6th for their one-hour episode on Oregon State University. Special guests include the producer, Kami Horton. Tickets are free, but required, so reserve your seats now. Our very own Larry Landis and other members of SCARC will be play some role in the broadcast.

The Office of Human Resources is offering several financial and retirement workshops soon.

There is also information about having one-on-one consultations with TIAA and Fidelity representatives.
There are new Social Justice Education Initiatives from Faculty Affairs. These foundational workshops are a great starting point for faculty and staff who are looking for a good solid step to start your social justice journey. Sign up for one of the half-day courses online.

“I like libraries. It makes me feel comfortable and secure to have walls of words, beautiful and wise, all around me. I always feel better when I can see that there is something to hold back the shadows.”

Can you guess the animal’s person?
This is Conan. He’s a little over a year old, and he’s small and energetic. You might think he still has some growing to do because of his huge paws, but he’s a fully grown adult we assure you. He just looks like a puppy, and will continue to do so until he goes grey. He is, in fact, a perma-puppy.
Answers can be shared with colleagues and guessed among the office. Next week’s newsletter will have the owner’s name. Last week’s pupper was Heather Bennett’s dog, Copper.
