Beaver Nation Voice

Beaver Nation Voice is a conversation series initiated to give students a chance to voice their opinions, imagine situations they may face in the future, and identify leadership qualities and traits that will get them to where they want to be. A broad variety of topics will be covered.

Spring 2014:

A podcast on divestment and sustainability with Faculty and Students at Oregon State University.

While Divestment has been a significant topic on campus this year, we know that many students, faculty and staff are still unsure what divestment truly means as well as the consequences that may occur no matter what action is taken or not taken. Consequently we view this Podcast from an education perspective for those looking to better understand divestment.

The panel includes:

Jesse Pettibone, Student

James Thomas, Student

Mike O’Malley, Faculty

Ken Winograd, Faculty

Jen Christion-Myers, Faculty

Winter 2014:

Join Dr. Erin B. Gallagher, Assistant Professor in the School of Arts & Communication and 3 graduate students for a conversation around leadership and communication. Will Later, Madison Parker, Brittany Puls, and Andrew Gundlach are graduate students in the Master of Interdisciplinary Studies Program.

More Information:

In The Center for Leadership Development at Oregon State University, we believe society will benefit from an opportunity for student’s voice to be heard on national topics that confront our society. Because of this, The Center for Leadership Development will host a special event titled: “Beaver Nation Voice”, a facilitated conversation with six of OSU’s brightest student minds imagining solutions to current and future concerns society will need to address. The conversation will be facilitated by Julia Sandidge, Director of Student Media, and Peter Bhatia, Editor of the Oregonian Newspaper.
