CAS Deans Marcus, Sadofsky & Blonigen invite you to the Faculty Club

Also LCB Dean Sarah Nutter will be there on Wed night.

What a great idea:

To:                         CAS Faculty

From:                    Andrew Marcus

Re:                         CAS nights at the Faculty Club: Thursday, February 22 & Thursday, March 1

The CAS Deans will be joining the Faculty Club on two upcoming nights for conversation and socializing:

Thursday, February 22nd from 5:00 – 6:30 pm: Andrew Marcus and Hal Sadofsky

Thursday, March 1st from 5:00 – 6:30 pm: Bruce Blonigen

The Faculty Club operates weekly in the Marché space at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art. I hope you will be able to drop by and visit with us.

This CAS night at the Faculty Club is a joint effort between the University Senate and the CAS Dean’s Office. Chris Sinclair and Bill Harbaugh (Senate President and Vice President) are looking for ways to encourage more faculty to run or volunteer for positions on the Senate or any of the Senate’s 30+ committees. Bruce and I are always interested in talking with you about college matters, and we also want our faculty to seek out ways to provide service to the university. Our hope is that this forum will allow you to do both in a relaxed and informal setting.

The University Senate is scheduling similar events this term for as many of the colleges and schools as possible as it prepares for elections and the selection of committees that will occur during Spring Term. In addition, the Senate has arranged for Provost Jayanth Banavar to be the featured guest at a Faculty Club drop-in event on Wednesday, February 28th and for President Mike Schill to appear on Thursday, March 15th. You are certainly invited to attend on those nights as well.

We hope to see you on an upcoming Thursday.

Sincerely,

W. Andrew Marcus, Tykeson Dean for Arts and Sciences, cas.uoregon.edu

      Metric Excellence is buying

      In fact, I think you can order the Metric Excellence cocktail at this affair

        I’m no mixologist, but a “Metric Excellence” aka “The Brad”, combines a condescending initial mouth with an empty after-taste followed by an institutional hangover that will make you, your colleagues, and the university as a whole hope that the Pacific plate will subduct before his next budget model melt-down.

          I’m no geologist, but it’s the subduction of the smaller Juan de Fuca plate under the North American plate that is the cause of Cascadia’s tension, volcanism, and (some of its) angst.

            naw that’s a myth

            there has been a recently discovered buoyant component to
            slab movement dynamics (really, there has) – physical source of that buoyancy is likely all the Metric Excellent hot air that has now contaminated those layers

            I also understand this this is how economists talk to each other …

      He is the Bomb. He is the Bruce.
      I know some readers will think I’m being sarcastic, since I usually am. But I’m not about this.

        well the Bomb should be targeted at The Brad – perhaps
        the pacific plate will respond accordingly

    It seems like a good opportunity, a commendable program of the UO Senate and the deans of the various schools.
