Oregon State engineering dean honored for gender efforts

The Society of Women Engineers has honored Oregon State University's dean of the College of Engineering for his work in promoting women in engineering fields. Scott Ashford is one of three recipients of the 2019 Rodney D. Chipp Memorial Award. Since Ashford took over as dean in 2014, the number of women among the college's tenured or tenure-track faculty has more than doubled; 50 of the college's 200 tenured or tenure-track faculty are women.
