Take Note (formerly News for Employees)

NEW! Citizens of the World: At the College of Agricultural Sciences, we encourage our students to be global citizens—to recognize, among other things, that decisions we make in the U.S. that affect our economy and our environment also impact economies and environments across the globe.  For many people, the path to global citizenship begins with an international experience in college. Perhaps it’s a faculty-led tour of agriculture in a foreign country. Or maybe it’s a semester abroad, immersed in the challenges of a new language and culture. Or maybe it’s that international student sitting next to you in class, right here at Oregon State.  Read more in this issue of The Source, paperless e-news from the College of Agricultural Sciences.
