Best of 2016

From the announcement of the $1 billion Knight Campus to helping prove Einstein's theory of relativity, from four gold medals at the Rio Olympics to Geri Richmond's National Medal of Science, it's how we exemplified excellence every day. It's how we threw our O in 2016.


What's Happening

There’s a lot going on at the UO.

Access. Excellence. Experience.

One of our goals in the coming years is to redouble our commitment to providing a world-class education to every qualified Oregonian who wants one. Another goal: to catalyze a new era of creativity and discovery by attracting the best and most diverse minds—students and faculty—from around the world. And surpass even our own high expectations to become one of the preeminent research institutions, not just in the United States, but anywhere.
