  • Charles H. Lundquist College of Business

    Like all business schools we are serious, determined, focused, and hands on. But we are not your typical business school. And you will know it as soon as you walk in the door. We are a community of thinkers and doers. A place that understands and celebrates business as the cultural intersection where ideas become reality. And where business does not shy away from societal issues, but tackles them, challenges them, solves them. Go ahead, push the envelope. Our inclusive, collaborative and supportive environment will challenge you and help you find the answers. And you’ll emerge stronger, smarter, and better prepared to lead, seize career opportunities, and realize what it truly means to be a Duck.

  • College of Education

    Teacher education? Of course we do that, and very well, but stop there and you’ll miss a lot. We also train administrators and counselors. School psychologists and family therapists. Human service providers and clinicians. Put simply, we’re in the people business. U.S. News and World Report consistently ranks us among the top graduate schools of education nationwide. We’ve been in their top 3 for special education 15 years running. And our research engine runs hot, to the tune of more than $30M annually in funded research that affects educational and social systems across Oregon, the nation, and the world. Together, our students and faculty find new ways to help people of all ages, especially kids, reach their full potential.
