Event Image Statesman-Journal Decides Secretary of State Endorsement at Willamette Law
2:00 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Candidates for Oregon Secretary of State Brad Avakian and Dennis Richardson will be interviewed by the Statesman-Journal Editorial Board at Willamette University College of Law to determine which candidate the newspaper will endorse.

Why is This Office Important?
Oregon's Secretary of State is first in line of succession to the governor. Duties include: auditor of public accounts, chief elections officer, and administrator of public records. The Secretary of State also serves on the Oregon State Land Board and chairs the Oregon Sustainability Board. Following every United States Census, if the Oregon Legislative Assembly cannot come to agreement over changes to legislative redistricting, the duty falls to the Secretary of State.

The event is a Q&A, not a debate. The editorial board will ask a series of questions that each candidate will answer in two minute intervals. The event moderator will request the audience not clap or respond to candidates during the Q&A. Audience members are invited to submit questions to the moderator on provided notecards. 

This event is an opportunity to learn more about the candidates for Oregon's Secretary of State and the candidate endorsement process. Anyone interested in Oregon's political process is encouraged to attend.

The event is open to the public. Paid parking is available in the guest lot located at the northeast corner of Winter and Bellevue Streets (subject to availability). Cost is $3 after noon.

There are metered spots along Winter Street near the College of Law, as well as a limited number of short-term meters at the north edge of the Sparks (main) parking lot, near the Montag Center (west side), in the Kaneko Commons lot (near the vehicle gate), and in the courtyard between Lausanne and Doney Halls. Two longer-term meters are located near the west side of Sparks Athletic Center. After 3 p.m., visitors may park in any lot on campus.

Event Image Movie Night: Trapped
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Join the American Constitution Society and the Women's Law Caucus for a screening of the recent documentary, Trapped. Trapped examines how, "U.S. reproductive health clinics are fighting to remain open. Since 2010, 288 TRAP (Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers) laws have been passed by conservative state legislatures. Unable to comply with these far-reaching and medically unnecessary measures, clinics have taken their fight to the courts. As the U.S. Supreme Court decides in 2016 whether individual states may essentially outlaw abortion (Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt), Trapped follows the struggles of the clinic workers and lawyers who are on the front lines of a battle to keep abortion safe and legal for millions of American women." We will have a brief discussion to start, lead by Constitutional Law Professor Steven Green. Professor Green will discuss the history of Supreme Court cases regarding abortion rights over the past forty plus years, from Roe v. Wade to Whole Women's Health v. Hellerstedt. Following the film we may.also have a guest speaker from Planned Parenthood of the Columbia Willamette.

Event Image "The "New Statistics": Improving Statistical Practices to Benefit Science and the Public
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Have you ever wondered what it means to say something is “statistically significant”? Would it surprise you to know that many professionals are nearly as confused as the general public? Natural and behavioral scientists have long relied upon the questionable practice of null hypothesis significance testing (NHST), and its logic and language have come to permeate public (mis)understandings of statistical evidence. Newer data analytic approaches emphasizing margins of error, strength of relationship, and the synthesis of multiple studies through meta-analysis are moving from highly recommended to mandatory practices in scholarly outlets. This talk discusses some of the common abuses and misconceptions of the “old statistics” and highlights how the long-overdue transition to these “new statistics” will better serve science and the general public. Explanations will be more conceptual than mathematical, highlighting benefits both to data analysts and research consumers. The role of the QUAD center in supporting these best practice with students and faculty will also be discussed.
