Dr. Joann Otto, chair of the Biology Department since 2004 retires in June, 2016. A much beloved and respected teacher and department chair, her legacy is a well run department and a passion for engaging donors, alumni and friends and establishing long-term relationships for Biology and the College of Science and Engineering. In honor of the work she has done, the Joann Otto Microscope Endowment was formed with the purpose of enhancing, upgrading and purchasing microscopic equipment for the Biology Department, a cause near to her heart.
Please join us in making a gift in honor of Joann. Once we reach our goal of $20,000 the fund will live on forever, thereby providing yearly support for WWU microscopes.
