President Schill announces historic Knight Campus gift

“I am committed to working with each of you to make the University of Oregon a great university, a better university, and the very best university it can be.”

Michael H. Schill is the 18th president of the University of Oregon. He began his tenure on July 1, 2015, and was formally invested into office on June 1, 2016. He previously served as the dean and Harry N. Wyatt Professor of Law at the University of Chicago Law School, as well as dean of the UCLA School of Law.


President's Updates

The Higher Education Coordinating Commission’s decision yesterday to reject the University of Oregon’s tuition plan is disappointing and creates uncertainty on our campus. If it stands, we will be forced to make even deeper cuts at the UO than are already anticipated, including cuts that will likely affect student support services, academic programs, and jobs. 

Over the past few months, I have spent a lot of time in Salem talking with lawmakers about the urgent need for additional state funding for public higher education. Read my update about the challenges and optimism for the University of Oregon.

As my two-year anniversary as president of the University of Oregon approaches, enough time has elapsed for me to do some assessment and make some course corrections. Over the past 21 months we have achieved quite a number of things. I am proud of what we, collectively, have achieved. But today’s Open Mike will focus on a failure, rather than a success.


ACADEMICS

U.S. News and World Report ranks the University of Oregon among the top 50 public universities in the US and the #1 public university in Oregon. We are a Carnegie Tier One university, which means we are among the highest research active US institutions.
