New Oregon Quarterly hits the streets with interview with President Schill

Flour made from crickets is good for you, there’s way too much garbage floating in the ocean and the ukulele is a legitimate instrument.

That’s just a sampling of the territory covered in the latest issue of Oregon Quarterly, the magazine of the University of Oregon. The autumn issue just went out the door and is on its way to alumni, campus news racks and the UO community. It’s also available online.

Among the stories is a feature on the UO’s new president, Michael Schill. The university’s 18th president talks about his adjustment to Eugene, his love of books and his commitment to moving the UO forward.

“I will work every waking moment of every day that I’m their president to make this place better,” Schill says in a video interview accompanying the article, “make it so it is as good and authentic and true to its history and its traditions as the University of Oregon can be.”
