Fall 2017 Distinguished Alumni Speaker Program (D.A.S.P.)

UO Graduate School alums are doing amazing work! To showcase some of their accomplishments, three distinguished alumni of the Graduate School will come back to Eugene to speak about their work and lives since graduating. These talks – planned in concert with the departments from which the alums graduated – will be open to the campus community and beyond.

D.A.S.P. kicks off this year with Sarah Cheesman, the Developmental Director at Ophelia's Place, a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering girls to make healthy life choices. Cheesman received her Ph.D. in Biology in 2003 in the UO institute of Neuroscience and followed a non-academic career path to pursue her  passion for helping young women. Her varied experience contributes to her unique perspective on transitioning to life outside of academic science.
