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.
“The academic resources available at the UO have allowed me to double major and minor in diverse fields of study that will hopefully guide me onto the career path that I want to pursue after graduating.”
“I moved to the US when I was 12 years old to get a better education. I had a hard time adjusting to the new language and new culture for a while before I could feel confident around other people. Now that I’m at UO, I have made many connections with other students and professors who support me.”
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.
