Announcing the new College of Design

I am pleased to announce that I have approved changes that will rename and create new structures for academic areas in the University of Oregon School of Architecture and Allied Arts.  Effective July 1, the school will be known as the College of Design.


As you are probably aware, we are undergoing reaccreditation this year by our regional accreditor, the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.

New Dean of the School of Law

It is my pleasure to announce that Marcilynn Burke will join the University of Oregon as dean of the School of Law. She will begin on July 1. An outstanding scholar and leader, Burke currently serves as associate dean and associate professor of law at the University of Houston, where she joined the faculty in 2002

Academic Budget Expectations

The University of Oregon faces significant financial challenges, including large operational cost increases, flat state appropriations, financial imbalances in several schools and colleges, market limitations on nonresident tuition, and an unwavering need to enhance our faculty and our excellence. This is the context in which I write to ask for your assistance.
