What We Do
We exist to provide Oregonians and their peers from around the world access to an excellent education.
We challenge our students to question critically, think logically, communicate clearly, act creatively, and live ethically.
We serve the people of Oregon, our nation, and the world through research, teaching, and outreach that benefits humanity, drives innovation, strengthens the economy, and transforms lives.
In following the Indigenous protocol of acknowledging the original people of the land we occupy, we also extend our respect to the nine federally recognized Indigenous Nations of Oregon: the Burns Paiute Tribe, the Confederated Tribes of the Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians, the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde, the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians, the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, the Coquille Indian Tribe, the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians, and the Klamath Tribes. We express our respect to the many more tribes who have ancestral connections to this territory, as well as to all other displaced Indigenous peoples who call Oregon home. Hayu masi.
Our state is our name. We are Oregon.
The impact of the University of Oregon is all around us. From Curry to Wallowa and Malheur to Clatsop, the benefits of our teaching, research, partnerships, and outreach span the entire state. Among our cornerstone projects, we're fighting climate change, improving K-12 education, addressing children's behavioral health, expanding the skills of our workforce, and strengthening the resilience of urban and rural communities.
