A LONGTIME OREGON DAIRY FAMILY,  Paul and Sandy Arbuthnot appreciate a great cheese-and the science that goes behind the best dairy practices. So when the couple decided to downsize their real estate holdings, they gave an apartment building to the OSU Foundation to fund an endowed professorship in food sciences. The OSU Foundation manages the property, and income from rent supports the work of Lisbeth Goddik, dairy processing Extension Specialist, recently named as Paul and Sandy Arbuthnot Professor.

“OSU is an essential part of Oregon’s dairy industry,” Paul said. “Working with the OSU Foundation on a gift of real estate enabled Sandy and me to support an incredibly capable, dedicated faculty in helping keep our dairy industry strong.”
