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 Friday, Provost Jayanth Banavar received the 2018–19 tuition and fee recommendation from the Tuition and Fee Advisory Board (TFAB). In response, he opened a public comment period for campus stakeholders and held a public forum that allowed him to hear directly from students. He and I greatly appreciated hearing from students at the forum, and thank everyone who invested time in this important process and shared their points of view.

As presidents of the Oregon State Senate and the University of Oregon, each of us has a unique perspective on how protecting undocumented children, known as Dreamers, benefits Oregon. These protections create opportunity. They create hope. They create promise for a generation of young people.

In my position as president of the flagship university of this state, I am haunted as many of you are by the spectre of Charlottesville. I ask myself, what should I be doing as an American and as a president of a major university to promote racial justice in this environment?
