The L.L. Stewart Faculty Scholar

A 1932 logging engineering graduate, the late Loran L. "Stub" Stewart went on to a distinguished career in the timber industry. He and his brother Faye generously supported their alma mater, and together established the Stewart Professorship for Gene Research in the College of Science. Among other gifts, Stub made a $500,000 estate gift to create the L. L. Stewart Faculty Scholars Program.

Established in 2005, the L. L. Stewart Faculty Scholars Program recognizes outstanding Oregon State faculty and provides resources to stimulate creative advancements in teaching, research and extended education. The Stewart Faculty Scholar is selected each year by the OSU president.


Minjeong Kim

The 2013 L.L. Stewart Faculty Scholar is Minjeong Kim, associate dean for the School of Design and Human Environment in the College of Business. She teaches and conducts research on topics related to design and consumer behaviors. In particular, her research focuses on how website design influences consumers’ decision-making processes.

“The overall objectives of my L.L. Stewart project are to bring together scholars from across the campus whose teachings and/or research are related to design and design-thinking, and to then build a design community within OSU,” she said. “Design as a process to innovation can encompass a wide variety of disciplines across diverse fields, from specific design fields (e.g., graphic design) to business, science, engineering, and more.”

A member of the Oregon State faculty since 2004, Kim has been recognized for her scholarly contributions by the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles Association. A graduate of Ewha Womans University in Seoul, South Korea, she earned her master’s and doctoral degrees from The Ohio State University.
