At the University of Oregon (UO), you'll be part of a community dedicated to making a difference in the world. Whether you want to change a community, a law, or one person's mind, the UO will provide you with the inspiration and resources you'll need to succeed.

Set in a 295-acre arboretum, the University of Oregon is aesthetically and environmentally green. Academic programs and student activities will bring you to the forests, mountains, and rivers of Oregon's wilderness areas. On campus, many of the UO's buildings get a green thumbs-up, including the cutting-edge Lewis Integrative Science Building, which is on track to earn a "platinum" certification from the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. In addition to temperature-controlled windows and an innovative waste heat recovery system, red oak trees on the building site were carefully preserved. At the UO, you'll have access to nationally recognized programs in sustainable business, architecture, and technology. In addition, our Campus Recycling Program is a national award winner, and the university recently signed an agreement to eliminate our carbon footprint.
