OSU is an AA/EOE/Vets/Disabled.

The MWM and WOWNet educational training programs aim to support woodland owners in making sound decisions about the management of forest resources. The MWM program provides an in-depth learning experience for owners of small woodland acreages through modules on a variety of topics relevant to forest management. Upon completion of the MWM training, individuals join a network of volunteers expected to share their new knowledge with others.

WOWNet is a peer-learning network intended for women interested in learning and sharing knowledge on woodland management, in recognition of the growing number of women becoming primary managers/owners of farms and forests who often lack the social capital, knowledge, and access to resources that allow them to be successful. Through peer-learning, many sources of knowledge and forest management are blended to ultimately empower individuals and strengthen the family forestland owner community.

Both programs are delivered in a manner consistent with best practices in the field of non-formal, non-credit adult education and respectful of local norms and culture. This is a full-time 1.00 FTE, 12-month, professional faculty position.

FNR faculty teach, develop teaching materials, create scholarship and deliver programs that collectively reach thousands of adult learners annually through locally based programming in every county in Oregon (https://www.forestry.oregonstate.edu/forestry-and-natural-resources).

Oregon State University is committed to creating and maintaining compassionate and inclusive learning and working environments for all learners, visitors, and employees. We envision collaborative community environments that enhance civility and embrace diversity. All employees are responsible for achieving this commitment. This commitment includes, but is not limited to, complying with Civil Rights and Language Access regulations. This individual will design, develop, and maintain and/or carry out Extension programs to ensure that educational programs and outreach activities serve diverse populations, including those that have been historically marginalized/excluded from participation.
