U of O Resident Elder Ramon Ramirez

Not everybody gets to go to college.  So certain segments of life and knowledge are just hard to find on campuses. 

Which is why the University of Oregon runs an Elder-in-Residence program. 

It brings to campus an elder from a community that traditionally has little representation in higher education. 

This year's EIR is Ramon Ramirez, founder of PCUN, Oregon's farmworkers union. 

Ramirez is on campus for meetings and lectures this week; he joins us to talk about his work and the knowledge he imparts on campus.
