11/20/2015 • Welcome, everyone. I am pleased to see so many people joining us today, and I am very thankful to have the opportunity for our campus to have this conversation.
11/18/2015 • We have an opportunity to move forward as a campus that embraces diversity, encourages equity, celebrates our differences, and stands up to racism. It is critically important for us, as a great university, to not turn away from hard conversations but to confront challenging issues thoughtfully and honestly. To encourage this dialogue, I invite you to attend an event, Lessons from Mizzou: A Campus Conversation.
11/12/2015 • Our nation today is engaging in serious soul-searching over issues of racial equity. It is about time. For too long, we have allowed ourselves to live as two nations—a world of class divisions, of racial divisions, reflected in where we live, what we earn, and how we are educated. As a great university we must confront these issues in a thoughtful and honest way.
11/12/2015 • I want to share a message that Vice President Yvette Alex-Assensoh sent to campus about an opportunity for conversation about honoring and valuing diversity at the University of Oregon.
11/10/2015 • Today we are here to celebrate the accomplishments of PathwayOregon. We are here to celebrate—but also to say that is not enough. Too many students are still left on the education sidelines. We must do much more to open our doors to more students from every walk of life, keep those doors open, and create paths to on-time graduation and successful careers.
10/30/2015 • I invite you to join me for my first all-campus presidential address on November 10 at 11:00 a.m. in the EMU Ballroom. I will share plans for improving access, retention, and graduation for our students.
10/01/2015 • Today’s heinous act of violence at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg is a terrible tragedy that affects all of us. Our hearts go out to the students, faculty, and staff of our sister institution, and to their loved ones.
10/01/2015 • Welcome to the 2015–16 academic year! Whether you are just starting classes at the UO or are well on your way to earning your degree, I am pleased to welcome you to the University of Oregon for what I believe will be a transformative year.
