Honored to join the University of Oregon

July 3, 2023

Dear University of Oregon community members,

I am thrilled to have arrived on campus and to begin serving as your president. It is such an honor to lead this outstanding university and work alongside all of you to advance our mission and impact. In the video that accompanies this message I share some of my hopes and goals as I settle into my new role. At the top of my list: to listen and learn from you!

To that end, I hope you will join me at a meet-and-greet reception on the afternoon of Wednesday, July 12, on the EMU Green. Please stop by anytime from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. to say hello. I will also say a few words at 4:15 p.m. I look forward to seeing you.

I will hold additional meet-and-greet events this summer and fall. The next one is scheduled for Thursday, August 10, from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Knight Campus.

I also look forward to many opportunities in the coming months to engage more deeply with my colleagues as we work together to expand the UO’s reach, prominence, and impact.

I appreciate the warm welcome I have already received. I am excited and optimistic about what lies ahead.

Go Ducks!

Karl Scholz
