A Celebration of Life honoring Marcus Borg — Join us for a community gathering to remember and honor Dr. Borg’s life and work. For 28 years, Borg was a professor of religion and culture at Oregon State University as well as a scholar and best-selling author who popularized a liberal intellectual approach to Christianity. His work inspired OSU alumnus Al Hundere to create the Hundere Endowment for Religion and Culture at OSU, of which Borg was the inaugural chair. Dr. Borg passed away on January 21. 3:30 p.m. in the Memorial UnionHorizon Room.
