Imagine a University...
... that inspires students, takes pride in its beautiful campus, explores new frontiers of research and connects with its community.
There are so many ways that UO faculty and staff help make campus a special place. Of course we come to work every day and give 110%, but we also support our athletic teams by wearing Duck colors on game days. We stay late to help students. We participate in Homecoming activities and make the campus look beautiful each University Day.
"This is a great institution because we have the ability to transform lives. But there are many qualified students who can't attend. That's why I give to financial aid and scholarships. We have all been given so much. It's important to give something back."
- Herb Chereck, Registrar
- O. Hayes Griffith, Professor Emeritus, Chemistry
Private gifts from faculty and staff fund scholarships, facilities, programs and so much more. Thanks to faculty and staff donors, we don't have to imagine a fantastic university - we have it!
Even if it's a little bit from each person, it makes a difference...
"Nothing is more important than the students we are supporting, I firmly believe in the idea that it takes a village to raise a child. It doesn't stop when they turn 18 or when they are done with high school. They need our help and support. We should help them with that, even if it's a little bit from each person, it makes a difference."
