Willaims Fund Showcase will feature Julie Haack & Sustainable Invention Immersion Week Initiative

An instructional grant from the WIlliams Fund helped bring to life the UO Sustainable Invention Immersion Week, allowing students to collaborate across majors to develop ideas and products to solve environmental and societal problems.

UO Chemistry and Biochemistry faculty Julie Haack will participate in the Williams Fund Showcase on Wednesday, November 7, from 11am – 1pm in the Erb Memorial Union’s Crater Lake North room.

Williams Fund Showcase will share innovations in teaching

Every year, the Williams Fund recognizes faculty members from across campus for their insightful approaches to undergraduate teaching.

An upcoming showcase will feature a panel of Williams Fund fellows and instructional grant recipients who will share insights and takeaways from their experience enhancing undergraduate education at the UO.

The panel will include Michelle McKinley, the Bernard B. Kliks professor of law; Kate Harmon, an instructor in the Lundquist College of Business; and Julie Haack, a senior instructor of chemistry in the College of Arts and Sciences, as well as a few other past fellows and grant recipients.

Harmon and Haack are the faculty members behind the UO Sustainable Invention Immersion Week, which was one of seven instructional proposals chosen by the Williams Council for 2017-18.
