President's Updates

As we conclude this academic year and prepare for the next, we want to congratulate Vice President for Research and Innovation David Conover on his retirement and express our thanks for everything he has done to serve the University of Oregon.

This past Saturday’s commencement was like none other. While we are immensely proud of all our graduates and were pleased to be able to offer a meaningful ceremony, albeit remote, we know we are all looking forward to the day when we can get back to in-person activities—both on and off-campus. And as we continue our planning for an eventual return, we wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your work, energy, creativity, and dedication to our students through this very difficult time.

I am grateful the U.S. Supreme Court blocked efforts to shut down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, an initiative that has helped countless young immigrants in Oregon and across our nation. At a time when the University of Oregon, our state, and country are painfully grappling with disparities in access to opportunity caused by historic and systemic racism, we need sensible and humane programs like DACA now more than ever.
