University Day at the COE

For more than 100 years, faculty, staff, students and friends of the UO have celebrated the beauty of the campus by weeding, planting and spreading mulch to have the grounds sparkling just in time for graduation.

#DucksGive 2017

#DucksGive will take place Thursday, May 18 and is the University of Oregon’s second annual giving day. We’ve set an aggressive university-wide goal of 1876 donors during the single-day campaign in honor of the year the UO was founded. To encourage participation, challenge gifts inspire many donors to make gifts that magnify the impact of those gifts. Giving Day is especially exciting for our young alumni and non-donors, with our peer institutions seeing as much as 60% of the gifts coming from first-time donors.

Educational Advocacy 101

While in on my first advocacy trip to Washington D.C., I learned a new term, “Policy Wonk.” I would love to say that I have been one since the beginning of my educational career, but I can’t. I can’t even say that I’m a policy wonk now. Like many people, I had never called a Senator or Representative, and I certainly never imagined trying to visit one! Sure, I had my own political leanings and always voted in presidential elections but never bothered to vote in a local or midterm election. I had never marched or attended a town hall meeting.
