March Social Hour & LGBT+ in STEM T-Shirt Survey

We have some funding to help offset costs of ordering t-shirts with the UO LGBT+ in STEM logo on it. In order to get the most accurate price quote, we need to assess interest level. We will send out an official order form later in March. Please fill out our survey ASAP (and preferably by March 4th) if you’d be interested in ordering a t-shirt with our logo on it:

And as a reminder, please join us for an informal social hour Wednesday, March 4th 6-8pm in the back room of Falling Sky on campus in the EMU. This is an ally-inclusive event, so all graduate students, post-docs, faculty, and staff are welcome!

LGBT+ in STEM T-Shirts and Leadership Team Members

LGBT+ in STEM has acquired some funding to order t-shirts that will be available to everyone at a reduced cost. We will be sending out a survey soon to our membership list to gauge interest in shirts so that we can get the most accurate price quote. A form to collect official t-shirt orders will be sent after that. To make sure you get this survey and order form, sign up for our mailing list here.

We are also looking to add new members to our leadership team, as several of our current members will be defending their PhDs and graduating in the next few months (congrats!). If you are interested in joining our leadership team or would like to suggest someone, please email us at

March Social Event

Thanks to everyone who has attended our last few social events held at Spectrum (November 20th and January 29th).

Our next social hour will be on Wednesday, March 4th 6-8pm at Falling Sky in the EMU on campus, where we’ve reserved the back room. This is an ally-inclusive, so bring your friends! All grad students, post-docs, faculty, and staff are welcome. Falling Sky offers a discount on Wednesdays for graduate students ($3 off any beer and food combo).

Announcing 2019-2020 Leadership Team

With the conclusion of the 2018-2019 school year comes the transition to a new leadership board. This board marks a new era for LGBT+ in STEM, as all founding members of the organization will have transitioned out of their leadership roles. We would like to thank Lisa, Kenyon, and Kiana for their time on the leadership board and recognize Abby and Tzula for their commitment to the board this year and next. We also want to welcome Alexis Kiessling (chemistry) and Amber Rolland (biochemistry) to the leadership team for next school year. Please help us welcome this new group of leaders. We hope next year we will continue to see growth in visibility and support for all graduate students, faculty, and staff in the sciences.

2019-2020 Leadership Team: 
Abby Pauls
Alexis Kiessling
Amber Rolland
Tzula Propp
