Each year, faculty, staff, students, and community members come together to informally talk about transportation. We call this Bean Bag Conversations we're Having About Transportation (BBCHAT). Each quarter we pick new topics that most interest the group and then bring either guest speakers or materials in to have informal chats about what most excites or interests us in transportation today. No readings, no homework, no prior knowledge necessary!
This Fall quarter, BBCHAT will be held every other Monday from 3:30-4:30pm. Join us in Hendricks 247 or via Zoom (https://uoregon.zoom.us/j/95229204005).

The Imagining Futures series seeks to reframe some of today’s pivotal social issues in order to conceptualize a more just and sustainable future for all. The topics covered throughout the lecture series will be interdisciplinary and will address issues that impact all of us. At this crucial turning point in human history, we now must ask: What does a better future look like, and for whom? Who will—and should—have the power to define the future? How do we move forward together? This lecture series will summon us to imagine answers to these and other related questions.
