President's Updates

One of the hallmarks of a great university is that it does not shy away from tough questions or difficult topics, be they cultural, theoretical, or scientific. Rather, a great university embraces challenges and applies intellectual, academic, and research rigor to delivering solutions that move the community, the nation, and the world forward to make it better.

I want to thank the many faculty, staff and students who came to my Campus Conversation forum last week. For those of you who could not attend, a video of the session and the written remarks are now available the Office of the President website.

A year ago when I accepted this position, it was with determination, enthusiasm, and great hope. I came to the UO for the love of public higher education, with appreciation for your work, and the intent to make a difference. I know that has at times meant shaking things up a bit and making hard decisions, which is part of the reason why I am here today — to share my vision, and be open and clear about our direction.
