Equity and Inclusion
We’re committed to continuously building an equitable and inclusive community. We know it takes intention, humility, and a willingness to listen to and learn from the people around us. It takes critical thinking and sometimes changes to our behaviors. It’s an evolving conversation with no endpoint—a continuous commitment to be and do better. Our community is at our best when we affirm, respect, support, and celebrate what makes us different along with the common threads that tie us together.

A growing number of our students identify with more than one race or ethnicity.
We Get Outdoors
Our campus is smack-dab in the middle of some of the most beautiful places to be outside anywhere.
Our Outdoor Program was one of the first of its kind when UO students banded together to organize group trips in 1967. More than half a century later, it’s still the first stop for any kind of outdoor adventure. Camping, rafting, biking, climbing—Ducks can explore solo with low-cost gear rental or join a group trip or workshop, with plenty of options for different physical abilities and experience levels.
You can even plan and lead your own outings with the Common Adventure program. Attend a trip initiator training, pick your destination, and gather friends new and old to explore all the Northwest has to offer.
