Message from Provost Banavar

April 3, 2019

Dear Friends,

As you saw in President Schill’s earlier message, I am stepping down from my position as provost at the University of Oregon, effective July 1.

It seems like just yesterday, when all of you gave me a very warm welcome to the university. As provost, I have greatly enjoyed working closely with and learning from Mike Schill, our Board of Trustees, and our amazing faculty.

I am thankful that I had the opportunity to work with a very dedicated staff, with generous friends and donors, with the Senate, and with other campus leaders to help improve our scholarly endeavors.

Here, at UO, we put our students first in all that we do. Whether it is in promoting their success or developing groundbreaking initiatives, I am grateful to have played a part in moving our university forward with your help and support.

I am proud to belong to the UO community and look forward to a very bright future for all of us.

Go Ducks!
