A Momentous Anniversary

Adapting to a mostly virtual world, the Lyllye Reynolds-Parker Black Cultural Center has built strong bonds and provided support and pride for Black students, faculty, and staff.

Reflections and Future Plans




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?

Dr. Bronwyn Baz in her white coat and stethoscope

“I received an excellent education at the University of Oregon. My faculty mentors offered great support, pushing me appropriately to excel in both music and science. They believed in me.

“Students deciding on a college should consider the UO as much as an Ivy League or private school. I serve on medical school admissions committees, and I can tell you that your state school can give you a great education. It’s what you make of it.”

Dr. Bronwyn Baz, BMus ’95 (music performance), BS ’00 (biology), lead pediatric physician at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital

“My sociology courses taught me to look at the world from different perspectives and ask critical questions. What I learned at the university shaped the kind of stories I wanted to tell—and how I wanted to tell them.

“I produced a documentary about migrant farm workers in Southern Oregon, and I chose to make it 80 percent of my grade. I ended up spending 15 hours a day in the editing room—and realized I was enjoying it.”

— Adam Markle, BA ’03 (sociology), Emmy-winning cinematographer and documentary filmmaker

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.
