We’re a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities—one of only 36 public universities committed to scientific exploration and interdisciplinary research. We’re founded on and committed to a tradition of classic liberal arts education. One dedicated to overcoming barriers and discovering how much there still is to discover. We’re driven by what we don’t know, and to finding the answers.We’ve done away with “diversity” and expanded it to include diversity, equity, and inclusion. We decided it’s not enough to just be different together. We want cultural encounters that lead to happy accidents. Cross-pollination that leads to new perspectives. We want thousands of bright students from Oregon, America, and around the world, learning from each other. Working and sharing with each other. Discovery and excellence demand it. So we demand it. At every level. We know the differences between us make us stronger and smarter.
