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.
At the UO you’ll develop a strong foundation in real-world settings with outstanding faculty, whether in a field experience or internship, researching in campus labs, or as part of a student-led program.
All of these degrees offer flexibility after college, teaching you skills that relate to a wide variety of occupations or serve as excellent precursors to graduate programs.
“The professors and GEs I’ve had so far all have been incredibly helpful and accommodating. They’ve often gone out of their way to provide extra resources or find information, and the classes I’ve taken have been very interactive and engaging.”
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.

Building for the Future
Even in my short time here, the evolution of the Knight Campus has been extraordinary, as we pursue science that helps people. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Knight for your investment and belief in us. Today, we celebrate not only how far we’ve come, but also how much further we will go, as we accelerate our efforts to help more people, sooner, reshaping not only discovery but also modern medicine.

The UO is one of six founding partners in the new Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance, a global effort to promote wellness and peak performance through discovery and innovation. Based at the Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact, the UO’s role in the alliance spans multiple areas on campus, including the Bowerman Sports Science Center. Alliance researchers will study peak physical performance in their efforts to advance human health, helping us all lead healthier, more active lives.
