SOU Announces 2015 Ronald E. McNair Achievement Program Cohort

SOU LOGO HZ 186 POS

(Ashland, Ore.) — Southern Oregon University has completed the selection process for its 2015 cohort of the Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program. The program uses federal grant funds to prepare eligible participants for doctoral studies through involvement in research and other scholarly activities.

The SOU Ronald E. McNair Achievement Program is one of just 158 such programs in the nation. It is specifically designed to ensure that the student scholars complete their bachelor degrees, enroll in graduate school, and have the knowledge, skills, and background preparation that are required to successfully complete a doctoral program.

The goal of the federal program is to increase the attainment of PhD degrees by students from disadvantaged backgrounds and underrepresented segments of society.

The 2015 cohort includes ten students: Thomas Burns (Veneta, Ore.), Shannon Connolly (Roseburg, Ore.), Alexa Gonzales (Menifee, Calif.), Anna Humphreys (Boulder, Colo.), John Pague (Medford, Ore.), Christain Ramirez Martinez (Ashland, Ore.), Carolina Regalado (White City, Ore.), Tamara Robertson (Camas, Wash.), David Sparks (Carey, Idaho), and Amy Waters (Grants Pass, Ore.).

The program’s namesake, Dr. Ronald E. McNair, was killed in the Challenger explosion in 1986, leaving behind a wife and two children. He earned a PhD in Laser Physics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1976 at age 26.

SOU Invited to Testify at Senate Hearing on Campus Sexual Assault

SOU LOGO HZ 186 POS

(Ashland, Ore.) — During a year in which sexual assault on college campuses has received a lot of attention nationwide, Southern Oregon University continues to be lauded for the manner in which it handles such reports.

A collaborative relationship between SOU’s Campus Choice program and the Ashland Police Department’s You Have Options program is at the center of the positive attention that the University has received regarding its handling of reported sexual assault on campus.

Angela Fleischer, SOU’s Assistant Director of Student Support and Intervention for Confidential Advising, has been invited to testify at a U.S. Senate hearing. “As you well know, the Ashland program—and the partnership SOU and the Police Department have—are seen as models around the country,” read an email from the office of U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, Chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism. “We would love to hear your views as to what makes collaboration between schools and law enforcement successful and how the federal government might be able to help incentivize such collaboration,” the email continued.

“It truly is an honor to be invited to testify before a Senate hearing on the issue of campus sexual assault,” Fleischer said. “I’m extremely pleased that the hard work and effort of those of us at SOU and the Ashland Police Department to do what is right has garnered such positive response and results.”

The hearing, “Campus Sexual Assault: the Roles and Responsibilities of Law Enforcement,” is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 9 in the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, DC.

“I hope that other law enforcement organizations and college campuses will adopt programs like these, offering more options to survivors, and contributing to the safety of both campuses and communities,” Fleischer said.

A bipartisan bill, the Campus Accountability and Safety Act, has previously been proposed by U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO). The bill, which was co-sponsored by 17 Senators, was introduced in July and is expected to receive a hearing in early 2015. Among other guidelines, it would increase campus coordination with law enforcement similar to the partnership between SOU and APD.

(Ashland, Ore.) – The Music program of the Oregon Center for the Arts at Southern Oregon University presents “A Rose in Winter,” a delightful mix of carols old and new, performed by the SOU Concert Choir and Chamber Choir on Sunday, December 7 at 3:00 p.m. in the SOU Music Recital Hall.

“A Rose in Winter” is a beautiful concert of Christmas music featuring the lovely German chorale “Lo how a Rose,” in settings by Michael Praetorius and award-winning Swiss composer, Jan Sandstöm; the virtuosic “Ave Eva” by the Slovakian composer Ivan Hrušovský; two lyrical settings of “There is no Rose” by Robert Young and Paul Hillier; two settings of “O Magnum Mysterium,” by Australian sensation David Childs and Swiss composer Ivo Antognini; Christmas motets by Hans Leo Hassler as well as a bouquet of traditional carols and spirituals from around the world.

“This concert will be a family favorite of the season. There will be warm, familiar pieces for the nostalgic lover of traditional Christmas music,” said director Dr. Paul French, “intermingled with unique, less familiar selections from around the world. This is a concert that will offer something that pleases everyone.”

A great advocate of contemporary music, French has commissioned and premiered over 40 new choral works and is also active in performing rare and seldom-heard compositions. In recent years, French has devoted special attention to the performance of Renaissance and Baroque music, and his performance of the Bach “Mass in b minor” was described as “beautiful and inspiring” by internationally known soprano, Julianne Baird. In 2012, iconic composer Morten Lauridsen praised French and the SOU Chamber choir as “brilliant and superb… in the top rank of university chamber choirs in the United States.”

Tickets are $10 general admission, $5 for senior citizens and free to full-time students. The Performing Arts Box Office is located in the Music Recital Hall lobby.

SOU Percussion Ensembles present audio visual concert

SOU LOGO HZ 186 POS

(Ashland, Ore.) – The Music program of the Oregon Center for the Arts at Southern Oregon University presents “Contact!,” an innovative, audio visual experience performed by the SOU Percussion Ensembles on Friday, December 5 at 7:30 pm in the SOU Music Recital Hall.

“Contact!” is inspired thematically by the piece, “Contactual Constellations,” composed by Bryan Jeffs, SOU adjunct faculty and an alumnus of the SOU Music program. “Contactual Constellation” features graphic musical scores manufactured onto bass drum heads, played upon by the performers, captured in real time and projected for the audience. The ensembles are directed by Dr. Terry Longshore, director of percussion studies at Southern Oregon University,

“Seeing the musical score, while hearing it being played, and, in real-time, getting to follow along visually to see how the artists interpret the score is an amazing experience for the audience,” said Longshore. “The SOU Graduate Percussion Group will have just premiered this piece at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention in Indianapolis in November. This concert will be the West Coast debut of this piece.”

SOU Percussion Ensemble outdoor-small

The concert will also include a classic percussion work, “The Drums of Orpheus” by Lou Harrison; “Dance of the Little Fox” by Celso Ruiz for clarinet quintet, arranged by his son, Grant Ruiz, a local flamenco guitarist, for three marimbas and vibraphone; “Reunion,” a new piece for marimba ensemble, written in the style of the Zimbabwe marimba tradition by Lucas Sennhauser, a SOU freshman music major; “Akadinda Trio” by Emmanual Séjourné, for marimba trio in the Uganda “Akadinda” style; “Piru Bole,” a hand drum ensemble piece by John Bergamo, featuring guest artist Daniel Kennedy from California State University, Sacramento; and “Tin Play” by Per Andreasson for percussion quartet.

For lovers of the “Rebel Frog” series composed by Bryan Jeffs, the Percussion Ensembles will introduce “The Rebel Frog Wassails.” Longshore characterizes it as “Frank Zappa meets Christmas music.”

Tickets are $10 general admission, $5 for senior citizens and free to full-time students. The Performing Arts Box Office is located in the Music Recital Hall lobby.

Governor Recommends Additional SOU Board Members

SOU LOGO HZ 186 POS

(Ashland, Ore.) — Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber has recommended for confirmation two individuals to serve on the Southern Oregon University Board of Trustees. Once confirmed by the Oregon Senate, Les AuCoin and Jeremy Nootenboom will complete the 15-member board.

AuCoin, a former U.S. Congressman, has been nominated to serve on the SOU Board of Trustees for a four-year term. In addition to representing Oregon’s 1st Congressional District from 1975 to 1993, AuCoin held the Glenn L. Jackson Visiting Professorship of Government and Business Ethics at SOU from 1998 to 2004. During that time he was named Outstanding Professor by the SOU chapter of Phi Kappa Phi, the oldest, largest, and most selective all-discipline honor society for public colleges and universities in the United States.

The Honorable Les AuCoin has served on many boards, including the Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle Board of Directors and the Pacific University Board of Trustees, among others. He has held various positions in university administration as well. He is the author of two books of non-fiction and his op-eds and essays have been printed in numerous publications, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Portland Oregonian and the Seattle Times.

“Mr. AuCoin brings great breadth and depth of knowledge and experience to our board,” said SOU President Roy Saigo. “His previous tenure at SOU as Visiting Professor also equips him with valuable knowledge of the University.”

Nootenboom has been nominated by Governor Kitzhaber to serve in a board seat reserved for a current SOU student. Students serving on the SOU Board of Trustees are appointed to fulfill a two-year term.

“It’s very important to have a student voice on the Board of Trustees,” Dr. Saigo said. “The collective knowledge and expertise of our Board of Trustees is extremely impressive. We are excited for our board to formally take over governance of the University in July.” In April, the Oregon State Board of Higher Education endorsed the creation of an institutional board for SOU.

Also this week, Governor Kitzhaber appointed current SOU board member Bill Thorndike, Jr. to the State Board of Higher Education. In that capacity, Thorndike will assist in the governance transition from the State Board to the SOU Board. The State Board will sunset on June 30, 2015 and the SOU Board will assume its governing role on July 1, 2015.

Honors College at SOU Students Serve Community

SOU LOGO HZ 186 POS

(Ashland, Ore.) — Forty-seven students from the Honors College at Southern Oregon University traveled to Portland recently, where they—along with approximately 1,000 other volunteers—participated in the Table For Two event held at Freeman Motor Company.

The students and other volunteers collectively packaged approximately 260,000 meals, each containing a nutritional combination of beans, rice, soy, and vitamins. Half of the meals went to the Oregon Food Bank, while half are destined for Rwanda. Honors College at SOU students partnered with two service organizations, Numana and Africa New Life, which provided funding for the purchase of the bulk food supplies and transportation of the packaged food.

“An integral aspect of the Honors College curriculum is community service,” according to Dr. Ken Mulliken, Director of the Honors College at SOU. “In addition to being a learning experience, this was very meaningful service for these students.”

The Honors College at SOU, now in its second year, accepts students from every major and allows for a customizable academic plan. All qualifying students who are accepted into the Honors College receive a scholarship.

In addition to service to the community, Honors College students also learn outside of the classroom with real-world experiences. “Every honors student works with a community mentor—a local professional working in a field of interest to the student,” Mulliken said.

“This is more than just networking; it’s an exploration of the uncharted world of life after college. Students will graduate with the necessary skills and experience to feel at home in a professional environment,” He continued. Honors College students work with their community mentors on applied research or other project which is then presented to members of the University and community upon completion.

SOU is accepting applications now through Jan. 16, 2015, for the 2015 cohort of Honors College Scholars. High school seniors and graduates, as well as transfer students who have not progressed beyond their sophomore year of college are eligible for consideration.

Priority consideration for admission into the Honors College will be given to those applicants who have a 1,200 combined critical reading and math SAT score with neither section below a 500, or a 27 overall ACT score with scores of at least 22 on both the math and English sections; and a cumulative GPA (high school and/or college) of 3.75 or higher, though Mulliken says students who don’t meet those qualifications are still encouraged to apply. “We look at the totality of each applicant: their personal interests, skills, previous community service, hobbies, and more,” he said. “We want students who will not only succeed academically, but who will contribute to the various aspects of the Honors College experience.”
