Professor Uggen: Aiding the Effort for Self-Expression

Professor Uggen received his M.A. in Spanish and his Ph.D. in Inter-American Affairs from the University of Miami. At his time in Willamette University, he has led a trip to Ecuador so students can both explore the culture and learn more about the Spanish language. You can tell his fighting spirit is something that he build before his academic ventures. He was a boxer before becoming a professor and taught boxing classes in the Oregon State Penitentiary. From the Prisoner’s Poetry team and our students, we thank you for donating some of your books.



You can tell how thankful we are because the photographer’s hands couldn’t stay still!
