As salmon vanish in the dry Pacific Northwest, so does Native heritage (Washington Post)

For all the growth that Oregon’s leisure and hospitality industry has seen in recent years, tourism leaders have focused on what the state lacks: a four-year hospitality degree that could retain Oregon students interested in the industry. But in September, Oregon State University-Cascades will help fill that gap when it debuts its hospitality management program in Bend.

With increased video use comes greater copyright concerns for higher ed (Education DIVE)

Raul Burriel, an information technology consultant at Oregon State University, calls it a question of education. “It is better to be informed and do things properly in the first place, but most people simply go on with the attitude that it’s better to ask forgiveness than it is to ask permission,” Burriel said.
