How We Got Here

 

 
 

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?

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.

“We are with you in celebration, in challenging the status quo, and in receiving feedback to create a campus student-ready for LGBTQIA+ people. We look forward to being in community with you.”

Haley Wilson, Coordinator, LGBT Education and Support Services

“I didn’t come out publicly to anyone outside of my close friends until I was here during my first year of graduate school. But being at the UO and living in Eugene, I find myself worrying less about whether I need to hide or tone down an integral part of my identity.”

—Amber D. Rolland, Biochemistry PhD candidate

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.
