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?

Why UO?

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.

“Obviously, the four students who went to Doha benefited enormously from the experience. But the knowledge and experience I’m bringing back will impact all of the students I teach in the SOJC.”

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.
