Oregon Impact 2021 is an interactive map tells the story of the University of Oregon’s impact in every Oregon county, legislative district, and congressional district. The tool displays data about UO students, alumni, and other interesting details in a customized and informative way.
This Oregon Impact map was recently updated with the latest data about the number of students, alumni, employees and local vendors doing business with the UO in each geographic area.
Statewide UO students received $133 million in federal, state, and institutional financial aid, and the map breaks down these allocations by district and county. Also featured from each jurisdiction is the number of students participating in Pathway Oregon, UO’s program that ensures that academically qualified Pell Grant-eligible Oregonians will have their tuition and fees paid through a combination of federal, state and university funds. Statewide 2,385 students are Pathway Oregon participants.
The map also shows the number of placements over the last five years of the UO’s Resource Assistance for Rural Environments (RARE) AmeriCorps program. This program, administered through the UO’s Institute for Policy Research and Engagement, is an interdisciplinary institute that assists Oregon communities by providing planning and technical assistance to help solve local issues and improve the quality of life for Oregon residents.
The Oregon Impact map is a collaboration between the UO Campus GIS & Mapping team, the Department of Geography’s InfoGraphics Lab, the Office of Institutional Research, the Institute for Policy, Research and Engagement, and Government and Community Relations.
