Ecolunch Seminar Series

Steens Panorama

The Ecolunch Seminar Series provides a semi-weekly forum for invited speakers to interact with Oregon Tech faculty, students, and community members about their work.  It is meant to help connect faculty and students with researchers, scientists, and resource managers on topics of mutual interest.  Seminars generally take place in Dow 251 on Wednesdays,  although alternate times can be arranged. If you would like suggest a topic for an Ecolunch Seminar, please contact Michael L. Hughes at 541-885-1642 or michael.hughes@oit.edu.
