About AroundtheO

Around the O is the UO’s go-to place for information about the university, its people and the difference they make in Oregon and around the world. Produced by the Office of Public Affairs Communications in the Division of Communications, it works to bring stories of the university’s groundbreaking research and world-class faculty and students to the broadest possible audience. It also serves as the hub for news, announcements and information of interest to the campus community.

The Around the O website features stories of interest to both the UO’s internal and external communities and is updated daily as events unfold. In addition to the website, a twice weekly email newsletter is sent to all faculty and staff, highlighting just a few of the stories posted to the website in the previous week.

We welcome news tips and story ideas that will help us inform our campus community of important and interesting events and achievements as well as help build the UO’s academic reputation.
