President's Updates

We have an opportunity to move forward as a campus that embraces diversity, encourages equity, celebrates our differences, and stands up to racism. It is critically important for us, as a great university, to not turn away from hard conversations but to confront challenging issues thoughtfully and honestly. To encourage this dialogue, I invite you to attend an event, Lessons from Mizzou: A Campus Conversation.

Our nation today is engaging in serious soul-searching over issues of racial equity.  It is about time.  For too long, we have allowed ourselves to live as two nations—a world of class divisions, of racial divisions, reflected in where we live, what we earn, and how we are educated. As a great university we must confront these issues in a thoughtful and honest way.

I want to share a message that Vice President Yvette Alex-Assensoh sent to campus about an opportunity for conversation about honoring and valuing diversity at the University of Oregon.
