President's Updates

April 18, 2018 As a leader in higher education, the University of Oregon has a profound duty and mission to promote and celebrate diversity of all types. Bringing people of different backgrounds and beliefs together lifts communities throughout our state, nation, and world and also enhances our primary missions of education, research, and service. In addition, perhaps more than ever, each of us needs to understand the perspectives of people who are different from ourselves so that we might build a community based upon trust and mutual respect.

April 17, 2018 President Schill delivered the following remarks during an unveiling of the new Hayward Field. Welcome to all the members of our University of Oregon community who are with us today. Welcome faculty, staff, students, alumni, neighbors, and friends. Today, I have the privilege of announcing a major new milestone in the advancement of the University of Oregon, a progression that has been primarily fueled by the generosity of our alumni.

Late last night, the university sent out a campus safety advisory about two serious crimes involving UO students that happened recently in neighborhoods near campus within the Eugene Police Department’s (EPD) jurisdiction. We sent this information to campus as soon as we were able to confirm these incidents with EPD. These assaults follow a series of armed robberies and other crimes in recent weeks near campus that have shaken our collective sense of safety and security. They are of serious concern to us, as we know they are to our students, their families, faculty, staff, and neighbors.
