UO Faculty Club

Sent April 1, 2024

President Karl Scholz and Interim Provost Karen Ford are pleased to announce the return of the UO Faculty Club. This is in response to faculty requests and is intended to serve as an opportunity for faculty to connect in a welcoming space.

The club will reopen on Thursday, April 18 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art Ford Lecture Hall. The president will provide snacks and soft drinks; beer and wine will be available for purchase.

We invite applications of interest from tenure-track and career colleagues for three coordinator roles to serve on the organizing group for the Faculty Club. This group will work in coordination with the provost’s office to help promote the Faculty Club, manage regular communications with OtP support, and organize occasional, light programming (e.g., a toast to retirees and major awardees). Organizing group members will be compensated with an annual $2,000 contribution to their ASA accounts for the full academic year and will receive a prorated stipend this spring.

We encourage you to consult the group charter and guidelines for information about the coordinator role. Please express your interest by Monday, April 8 if you’d like to be considered for the organizing group.  We aim to have representation from three different colleges/schools, and we’re eager to work with the coordinators this spring and next year.
