Quack Chats is a University of Oregon public-outreach initiative that brings the campus community together with the local community. Faculty members share their research with the public during regular pub talks and host a monthly Run With a Researcher event that merges recreational group runs with research salons. Quack Chats events are held both on and off campus and include an array of local happenings that highlight UO research.

All events are free.
