President Michael H. Schill has established three key priorities to ensure the University of Oregon secures its place among the top public research universities: Excellence, Access, Experience.
Excellence: Building tenure-related faculty and promoting academic research
Access: Ensuring affordability, access and success for students
Experience: Delivering a rich, outstanding educational experience in an inclusive and diverse environment
Some of the recent investments in these priorities funded by generous donors include: the Presidential Initiative in Data Science, matching funds for nine new endowed faculty chairs, programming for a new Black Cultural Center, the new Media Center for Science and Technology, and the new Oregon Research Schools Network.
