Now is the time of year to show your appreciation to the UHC professor you think deserves it by nominating them for the UHC Outstanding Professor Award. You can nominate your UHC professor of choice in the drop box located in Slug 1, or you can send an email to Tina Dinh at dinht@onid.orst.edu.

6.  A Message from the Dean: University Honors College Associate Dean Bill Bogley steps down

Bill Bogley, Associate Dean of the University Honors College, has elected to step down from his administrative position in the UHC.  Effective July 1, 2010, Bill will be returning full time to teaching and research in the Mathematics Department.  In thinking about this transition, Bill observed “The opportunity to work with faculty from all corners of campus has truly opened my eyes to the incredible diversity and talent that we have here at OSU. This broadened perspective has changed my life.”  Bill has effectively served the UHC for many years.  From 2002-2004, he was one of the first professors to be in residence at the College.  As his commitment to and knowledge of the UHC grew, he was selected in 2004 as the first Assistant Dean of the UHC.  He was promoted to Associate Dean in 2006.  Bill has been a critical force in shaping the UHC for eight years.  Among his many contributions to the UHC, Bill has been most instrumental in developing our extensive and diverse portfolio of Honors courses. During the interim period between when Joe Hendricks stepped down and I was appointed, Bill directed the activities of the UHC.  I am grateful to Bill for everything he has done for the University Honors College, but especially for the support he has provided to me as I settled into my new position as Dean.  Bill will be missed in his position as Associate Dean, but I certainly understand his desire to want to return to those things that drew him to the academy in the first place.   Fortunately, we know that Bill will continue to be a member of the Honors community.  Bill is chairing the search committee for the next Associate Dean.
