University of Oregon

Sandra Dorning is a 2017 graduate of the University of Oregon’s Robert D. Clark Honors College, where she majored in Marine Biology and minored in Political Science. A lifelong passion for marine conservation led her to spend her undergraduate career studying invasive sea squirt ecology in Oregon’s Coos Estuary and researching whale acoustic behavior as a NOAA Ernest F. Hollings Scholar. Sandra now aims to channel her passion in the direction of marine policy—she will study marine environmental management and environmental policy as a Marshall Scholar and hopes use to this training in a career in international fisheries management.
