Flock Together

Be a Part of the University of Oregon's COVID-19 Recovery Efforts


The University of Oregon responded to the threat of COVID-19 by coming together like never before. We were able to take steps to protect the UO community’s health and safety while upholding our commitment to student success thanks to the support of our Duck family.


The COVID-19 pandemic presents a once in a generation challenge. The University of Oregon is leading the way in research and recovery—from expanding testing, to examining the future of how we design buildings, to delving into how these unprecedented events are impacting families. Through it all, we remain committed to the success and safety of our students.


As the university begins preparations for a possible return to in-person instruction for fall term 2020, we are turning our attention to the long-term recovery of our community—and toward the contributions we can make to other communities recovering from COVID-19 across the nation and around the world.


We hope to have you as a partner in these efforts. We have never faced something like this beforebut with your help, we will meet the challenges ahead and emerge stronger. Because when Ducks flock together, there is nothing we cannot do.
