The Oregon Multimedia Project will combine performance of new works for violin and piano with photographs of the Oregon landscapes that inspired the compositions, at Beall Hall on the UO campus on Tuesday evening, October 27th. The composers are recent UO graduates Benjamin Krause and J.M. Gerraughty, whose works will be performed by Wyatt True on violin and David Servias on piano. In addition, a violin sonata by Alex LaFollet will be performed without photography. Wyatt True joins Eric Alan in the KLCC studios. 

A conversation with Dr. James Braxton Peterson, who will give the UO’s annual Lorwin Lecture on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties on Thursday, October 22nd, entitled “A Song, A Slogan and a Service: Dispatches from the Movement for Black Lives.” It begins a year-long focus on themes of justice by the Oregon Humanities Center. Dr Peterson hosts “The Remix” podcast on WHYY in Philadelphia, and is an MSNBC commentator. He also founded Hip Hop Scholars, Inc., and is Director of Africana Studies at Lehigh University.

Both of Oregon's U.S. Senators were on the University of Oregon campus today (Monday) to hear from college students about how to deal with the rising cost of school. They called it a "listening session."

The University of Oregon's incoming freshman class is the most diverse and academically prepared in the school's history. The class is more than 4,000 students strong.

Roger Thompson is Vice President for Enrollment Management at the U of O.

Thompson: "If we look at academic preparation, high school GPAs, test-scores, the amount of AP, IB, all the college work that they've already completed in high school then they are the most academically prepared entering freshman class we've ever had."

The Faculty Union at the University of Oregon has tentatively agreed to a new 3-year contract. A ratification vote is set for October.

The deal includes a 3 and a half percent increase in cost of living raises over the next three years. This is the second contract negotiated by United Academics. Sociology Professor Michael Dreiling is President of the 18-hundred member union. He says before the union formed in 2013, raises for faculty were inconsistent.
