We may see new seaweed food products on the market before too long. For instance, earlier this year, an Oregon State University scientist unveiled seaweed that he has been cultivating and working on it for 20 years. It’s a seaweed that tastes like bacon. It’s also very nutritious, with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, iodine, potassium and a lot of protein.

About half of the surveyed students (52 percent) said they use captions to improve their comprehension of course work.

AFAPC website: The AFAPC website is now live and we invite you to visit it at afapc.oregonstate.edu. AFAPC stands for the Association of Faculty for the Advancement of People of Color.

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.

Employee giving drive: Oregon State University faculty and staff are encouraged to participate in a giving drive organized by the OSU Foundation, which allows OSU employees to donate to a wide variety of areas at OSU from student support to facilities to programs.  Since 2006, OSU employees have donated more than $25 million.
