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

Over the last week, I have received in-person and online input from students and other campus stakeholders on the 2019–20 resident undergraduate tuition recommendation from the Tuition and Fee Advisory Board (TFAB). I greatly appreciated hearing from students at the open forum, and I want to thank everyone who invested the time to share their point of view.

I am the first person to admit that I am not an expert when it comes to social media and the way that information is consumed, created, and shared in our digital-first world. I like to follow friends on Facebook and I fully appreciate that Instagram and Snapchat are among the preferred communications channels of many University of Oregon students, but I am not personally active on social media. In so many ways our society and lives are better for the speed, power, and access that comes from living in the digital age, but there are times when it also comes at a cost. Over the last weekend, we experienced one such moment at the UO, when the rapid circulation of misinformation on social media unnecessarily created a problem—or the perception of a problem—on our campus. 

The University of Oregon’s updated Climate Action Plan (CAP) continues to work toward carbon neutrality. This work began in 2010 when we first created a plan to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.  The updated CAP includes immediate actions that the UO will take to reduce emissions, and it commits to vital studies needed in order to establish long-term, achievable emissions reductions.
