Academic Leadership for Oregon


A message from the provost welcoming faculty for the 2023-24 academic year with notes about faculty success, academic leadership, bargaining, academic continuity, and on-going communication.

This initiative is a campus collaboration that aims to ensure every person at UO - faculty, staff, and students - have information, opportunities, and the tools to form a high-quality mentorship network. Join the kickoff event on October 2!  

To ensure faculty feels informed and supported going into the new term, we've provided you with reminders of required academic policies and offer you resources and opportunities to help you prepare your course and syllabus.
