UO gets $6M to endow family counseling and speech clinic

6/28/2016: UO gets $6M from Marin Community Foundation to endow family counseling and speech clinic. Andrew Theen has the good news in the Oregonian:

“Our long-term vision is to expand the college’s clinic and capabilities to become the educational and social-services equivalent of a modern teaching hospital,” UO President Michael Schill said in a statement. “This very generous gift is a game-changing step toward achieving that goal.” Services at the clinic average $15 per client, according to the university, giving Eugene and Springfield residents access to therapy at a lower cost.

    Think of where we might be now as a research university if Allyn Ford hadn’t sacked Lariviere — no Gottfredson, no Berdahl, no Coltrane….

    UO Matters bait. Baseball team lost 1.7 million in fiscal year 2015, not counting the $780,000 debt repayment for the year.

      Drop baseball, and we’d have more than enough to cover the hole Coltrane dug for CAS Humanities.

      • Dog says:

        Oh come on UOM – Coltrane has held it together, as has been his previous praise. How could have have dug this hole? Did he have a shovel or was he just looking the other way when the dogs dug
        deep into the ground …

    $13M for two solid academic causes in one month. Not bad. Any news on how much of the $20M for Lillis and Bean’s sports spires of excellence programs has been raised?
