As the world watches the unfolding Ebola crisis with increasing concern, the UO also is assessing programs that send students to West Africa to study. Decisions on whether to continue those programs are being made with the safety of students and faculty as the first priority.
Along with the rest of the nation, the UO is taking time to embrace Hispanic culture and contributions this week as part of the nationwide Hispanic Heritage Month observance. A daylong campus celebration takes place this Sunday, Oct. 12, in and around Gerlinger Hall with soccer, music and dancing.
But the month is about more than festivities. It’s also a time to reflect on the many ways that Hispanic culture has broadened and enriched the American experience, as well as an opportunity to renew our commitment to inclusion and multiculturalism.
We’re excited about our 2014 class of freshmen. They’re smart, diverse and come from all over the globe.

We’ve picked some of them to profile, starting with an outstanding group of Stamps Leadership Scholars. We’ll be adding more profiles during the fall term, so be sure to check back often.
