Advancing the UO's Mission

The University of Oregon provides Oregonians and their peers from around the world access to an excellent education. We challenge our students to question critically, think logically, communicate clearly, act creatively, and live ethically. We serve the people of Oregon, our nation, and the world through research, teaching, and outreach that benefits humanity, drives innovation, strengthens the economy, and transforms lives.

Without engagement from alumni and advocates like you, the UO would simply not be successful. When you talk to lawmakers, attend events, and keep up to date with our work at the state and federal levels, we all thrive.
