LA GRANDE, Ore. May 26, 2016 – Eastern Oregon University’s Board of Trustees will hold its next regular meeting from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, June 2 in Inlow Hall, Room 201.
Following opening announcements and comments, trustees will hear from Amy Yielding, associate professor of math, and Travis Lowe, a senior math major, about research opportunities, internships and capstone work at EOU.
Yielding, Lowe and Sydney Nelson, a junior math major, recently partnered with the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to improve an air quality forecasting model being used by the city of Burns to guide home heating and open burning practices.

After the morning break, Jeff Dense, professor of political science, and Donald Wolff, interim vice provost, will give the featured presentation on measuring academic quality. They will focus on how faculty and administration are working together to ensure academic quality across the curriculum by articulating and directly assessing learning outcomes in courses, programs and the university as a whole.
Routine consent and action items will be discussed next. After lunch, history faculty member Nicole Howard will share a day in the life of a professor, touching on the duties and responsibilities of faculty.
