Research drives our mission

We’re one of only 36 public Association of American Universities (AAU) schools—the leading research universities in North America. UO leads the way in such fields as nanotechnology, sustainable design, and special education. Dedicated to innovation and fueled by collaboration, we are among the preeminent research powerhouses in the Pacific Northwest. We’re helping to lead Oregon forward by investigating issues like climate change and earthquake preparedness, fostering creativity in the arts, and revving the engine of the local economy. We’re here to teach, learn, and—some days—change the world.
