The University of Oregon's beloved mascot never speaks. But those who have been the famous fowl have stories to tell.
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?

“I was humbled by the sheer power of nature. I developed ideas, flexed creative muscles, and strategically addressed real-world issues. I learned tangible skills like responsive web design, strategic brief building, and how to effectively and beautifully communicate about environmental changes.”

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.
Marian Hettiaratchi's research takes a big step toward improving the effectiveness of spinal fusion procedures and repairing broken or defective bones. As she begins her new job at the Knight Campus, that research lays the groundwork for her UO lab and has landed in Science Advances, a major scientific journal.
