Where Virtual Reality Gets Real

360-degree video. Augmented reality apps. Virtual worlds. Students and faculty at UO Portland's new Oregon Reality Lab are using immersive media technologies to create virtual reality experiences. They're also also studying their impact on communication, business, and social innovation.

Follow Future Ducks

 

 
 

Duck foot icon

Nestled between rivers, mountains, and a rocky coastline—we’re all about beautiful contrasts.

We’re relentlessly innovative, but grounded in a history we’re constantly learning from. We’re thinkers who create, builders who dream, adventurers, and change agents happily rooted in our own personal arboretum. 

We love technology and nature, abstract art and discrete mathematics. We believe in respect and inclusion, conversation, and collaboration, and we’re always interested in diverse perspectives.

So don't you want to be a Duck?

A New Approach to Green

Your assignment: Convey your vision for the future of Mount Hood National Forest through a written public testimony—and a 15-second Instagram video. That's just one of the projects in our environmental humanities course.

It’s a different way to study the environment—through creative approaches that just might be what’s needed to address the world’s biggest natural challenges.

Ann Bancroft

“The mountains, the ocean, the laid-back atmosphere of Eugene—the whole thing just fit. It was all of my interests coming together, from the outdoors to sports to getting the education that I wanted.”

Ann Bancroft, BS '81 (Physical Education)

Aja Johnson speaking at commencement

“No matter how far you fly from the nest, always remember that Duck Nation will be there to support, nurture, and guide you through the challenges that life will bring.”

—Aja Johnson, MS '18 (Couples and Family Therapy)

A Place for Curiosity

Ducks dive into research to find answers to some of humanity’s biggest questions. We’re using big data to save and improve lives, striving to predict earthquakes and prevent deadly disease. We’re combining expertise across disciplines in math, biology, and genomics with bioengineering, neuroengineering, and precision medicine to fight cancer.

We’re re-defining research education with the Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact, shaping the next generation of scientists, innovators, and entrepreneurs, ready to serve the state, nation, and world with discovery and impact.

Aliso Viejo, California

Michelle has always been intrigued by the internal functions of the human body. As a Knight Campus Undergraduate Scholar, she is working with mentor Kelly Hyland, a research engineer in the Guldberg Lab. With Kelly’s guidance, she’s studying cartilage degeneration in osteoarthritis, as well as potential regenerative therapies. Next? Maybe patient care, maybe further research. Either way, Michelle’s experience in the Guldberg Lab has set her up for a future in advancing medicine.
