Statements & Notes

01/06/2021 • President Michael H. Schill shared the following statement with the university community regarding the violence taking place in Washington D.C. and cities throughout the United States.
12/02/2020 • The University of Oregon celebrated the grand opening of the Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact, featuring a number of speakers, highlights of the new building, and a mixed reality experience.
08/13/2020 • As you have no doubt heard, the Pac-12 Conference has decided to postpone all fall athletic competition for the remainder of the calendar year. While it was a difficult decision to make, it is the right decision, one supported by Athletic Director Rob Mullens, guided by science, and a deep commitment to the health and welfare of our student-athletes.
06/18/2020 • I am grateful the U.S. Supreme Court blocked efforts to shut down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, an initiative that has helped countless young immigrants in Oregon and across our nation. At a time when the University of Oregon, our state, and country are painfully grappling with disparities in access to opportunity caused by historic and systemic racism, we need sensible and humane programs like DACA now more than ever.
