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.

Michael Hames-García

“As someone who attended K–12 in Oregon, and who went to college in Oregon, I feel like I understand what that transition is like for a Latino student who may be a first-generation college student, going into an institution that is predominantly non-Latino.

“I want to be able to be a part of creating the structures and spaces that make them feel welcome and comfortable.”

Michael Hames-García, professor of indigenous, race, and ethnic studies and faculty director for the Latinx Scholars ARC

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.

Michelle has always been intrigued by the internal functions of the human body. As a Knight Campus Undergraduate Scholar, she is working with mentor Kelly Hyland, a research engineer in the Guldberg Lab. With Kelly’s guidance, she’s studying cartilage degeneration in osteoarthritis, as well as potential regenerative therapies. Next? Maybe patient care, maybe further research. Either way, Michelle’s experience in the Guldberg Lab has set her up for a future in advancing medicine.
