“‘Since its inception the award has been bestowed on 137 outstanding faculty members,’ Coltrane said. “These faculty members are recognized for their enduring commitment and contribution to our shared institutional spirit of learning, intellectual inquiry and service.’  

“Candidates are nominated by deans, with input from faculty and unit heads, and nominations are reviewed by the Fund for Faculty Excellence Awards review committee before a final determination is made by the provost. The award provides faculty members with a $20,000 salary supplement or $30,000 for research support.”

The UO College of Education faculty member, director of the Center for Equity Promotion and former vice president for institutional equity and diversity joined the UO nearly 20 years ago. He has used his many academic, administrative and community roles to advance equity and inclusion at the university, across Oregon, and around the world.

Organized by Cheryl Hartup, Associate Curator of Academic Programs and Latin American Art, “Diálogos” — the Spanish word for dialogues— activates exchanges between art and artists, the viewer and the object, and the museum and the communities it serves. The exhibition features fifteen prints, photographs, kinetic sculptures, and mixed media objects by artists from Cuba, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and the United States.
