Betty S. Henry Amundson Faculty Scholar in Ethics

December 31, 2015

A Portland native and former OSU student, Betty Henry Amundson designated part of her estate to the College of Business, where it created an endowment to support a faculty member in business ethics.

As a student, Betty began her studies in business at Oregon State University before graduating from the University of Oregon. She worked as a collection specialist for local businesses and married Orin Amundson, one of the principal owners of Shaw Surgical Supplies. A longtime resident of Tigard, she left her mark on the area by proposing the name for Washington Square shopping center through a contest run by its developers. She passed away in 2014.

The Betty S. Henry Amundson Faculty Scholar in Ethics Endowment Fund is used to recruit and retain faculty who have demonstrated excellence in teaching, research, and ethics in business. The fund enhances a focus within the College of Business on ethics and the importance of teaching students ethics as it translates to both academic and professional careers.
