Abby PutnamAcademic Program Specialist

Prior to joining the academic program services team at the School of Human Ecology, I was science educator for the Oregon Museum of Science & Industry and California State Parks. I am inspired by whole systems thinking and inventive problem-solving, values that are at the heart of the work done at Human Ecology. As an Academic Program Specialist, I support faculty affairs in ways that allow them to continue to create a productive learning environment for students and the community. I look forward to continuing to help School of Human Ecology learn, grow and innovate.
