President to deliver his state of the university address Friday

October 4, 2017 - 5:00am

UO President Michael Schill will announce several new initiatives and investments during his state of the university address scheduled for 11 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 6, in the Erb Memorial Union ballroom. 

During his talk, the president will also reiterate university priorities, talk about recent accomplishments and provide updates on some of the institution’s efforts of the last two years.

Schill invited faculty, staff, students and the greater community to the address in his welcome letter to campus in September. Volunteer members of the advisory boards that assist the UO’s schools and colleges also will attend.

The president has held similar all-campus gatherings each fall since joining the university in 2015.

Friday’s address also will be livestreamed on the UO Channel and recorded for those who cannot attend in person.
