President's Updates

President Michael H. Schill delivered the following remarks at the UO Board of Trustees full board meeting in Portland: Thank you, Chair Lillis. Let me first thank ASUO President Maria Gallegos and Vice President Ivan Chen for being here to represent student government. Ensuring that we have open lines of communications with our students is a high priority for me and my entire administration. I am very much looking forward to working with Maria, Ivan, and the rest of ASUO on making sure that student voices are heard and well represented. I believe we have a good foundation for a fruitful and productive working relationship

As we close out the 2017-18 academic year, I offer my warm congratulations to all of our graduates. I also want to thank everyone—faculty, advisors, graduate instructors and researchers, and staff—who helped our graduates reach the finish line. Together, we accomplished quite a bit this year. We took big leaps forward in advancing our academic enterprise: we broke ground on the Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact and hired a permanent executive director to lead this extraordinary effort to further the mission of science in the service of society; we invested in promising new academic programs—from data science and science media to embedding education researchers in high schools—and we continued to hire and invest in world-class scholars in fields such as obesity prevention, Black studies, anthropology, and volcanology to name a few.

President Michael Schill delivered his remarks during the University of Oregon Board of Trustees Meeting on June 8, 2018. Welcome to the board, Marcia. You have been a great supporter of the UO for years and you bring to us incredibly valuable experience and expertise with respect to executive leadership and K-12 education. I am closing my third year. It is amazing to think we have wrapped up another academic year. Three years have flown by.
