Update on the Sport and Wellness Initiative

April 12, 2021

Dear Colleagues,

As you may know, the UO has embarked on several academic initiatives over the last 18 months or so that are designed to recognize and catalyze the academic and research strengths of our institution. Among them is the Sport and Wellness Initiative, which began in earnest last term.

The Sport and Wellness Initiative is designed to integrate and increase the impact of a wide range of academic fields in sport and wellness; provide world-class experiences and educational opportunities to attract students; and align the university with research and expertise on healthy living and environmental quality, while helping the residents of the state live longer, healthier lives.

We are collecting feedback from stakeholders across the UO community. If you haven’t already provided input and would like to be involved in a campus workshop, please contact Carlyn Schreck at cschreck@uoregon.edu.
