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

Last Thursday, Oregon Governor Kate Brown released her budget for the FY 2017–19 biennium and proposed flat funding for all seven public universities. This is good news only in the sense that it could have been a lot worse due to the state’s estimated $1.7 billion budget deficit for the next biennium. The bad news is that flat funding from the state creates significant financial challenges for the UO.

December 1, 2016 President Michael H. Schill delivered the following president's report to the University of Oregon Board of Trustees during the December meeting. These are remarks as drafted and may not be verbatim. We will be discussing in great depth tomorrow two matters that occupy a great deal of my time and energy—the Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact and the governor’s recommended budget that was released today and its impact on our own operating budget. Thus, I will keep my remarks on those very short.

We, the president, provost, vice provosts, vice presidents, deans and other leadership of the University of Oregon, are committed to creating an inclusive, welcoming, and equitable learning environment for every member of our academic community.
