Board of Visitors

The Board of Visitors (BOV) is a volunteer group of citizens who provide a vital link between the Oregon Humanities Center and the general public. BOV members serve as OHC advocates by being ambassadors for the OHC in the community, attending OHC events, contributing financial support, and providing guidance to the director and associate director regarding OHC programs and goals.

BOV members attend two meetings during the academic year (fall and spring) and participate in the intellectual life of the OHC by attending events whenever possible and encouraging friends and family to attend.

BOV members are encouraged to help the OHC expand its base of support through the nomination of new members, the cultivation of new donors, and the identification of fundraising opportunities.
