Duck of the Week

Duck of the Week aims to tell the stories of our employees and their work in their own words.

Here we highlight those who have gone above and beyond – such as creating new ways to engage with students, or taking care of critical infrastructure on campus, or embracing technology to stay connected with colleagues.

Take a moment to suggest a coworker or two to be featured in an upcoming week. Nominations are open to faculty members, officers of administration, classified staff, graduate employees and student workers.

The purpose of Duck of the Week is to help foster community among UO employees and share employee experiences by learning about different UO jobs and hearing from our colleagues’ point of view. Being included in the series is not intended to be an assessment or evaluation of on-the-job effectiveness or otherwise connected to a formal performance review.
