Sustainable Land Use Project

Launched in 2005 following the passage of Oregon's Measure 37, a property compensation initiative, the Sustainable Land Use Project addresses legal issues surrounding how we choose to develop, or not to develop, lands within our communities. Fellows evaluate land use laws, theories, and practices to ensure sustainable development.

Victoria Whalen - Dean's Distinguished Environmental Law Fellow 

Victoria was born and raised in Georgia, though most of her family ties are in upstate New York. This is what drew her to attend undergrad in New York City at Marymount Manhattan College where she received a double BA in Biology and Urban & Environmental Sustainability with a minor in Law & Ethics. During her years at Marymount, she was deeply engrossed in the science, social justice, and environmental justice aspects of climate change. Before moving to Eugene, she worked with two climate justice organizations, Our Climate and NY Renews, on the lobbying and passage of the Climate and Community Investment Act. She is excited to learn the intricacies of climate change in the Pacific Northwest and enjoy the great outdoors.
