The University of Oregon is one of only two Pacific Northwest members of the Association of American Universities. The UO enrolls more than 20,000 undergraduate and 3,600 graduate students representing all 50 states and nearly 100 countries. The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) is the intellectual hub of the University of Oregon, providing academic programs that support the mission of the entire institution and shape its identity as a comprehensive research university. Over the past five years, increased resources for tenure-track faculty lines, coupled with an historic wave of retirements, has allowed CAS to hire 167 tenure-track faculty (more than a third of its total research faculty), transforming its faculty ranks to build diversity, as well as research expertise in strategic areas ranging from Global Health to Black Studies to Data Science. The UO’s 295-acre campus features state-of-the art facilities in a beautiful Pacific Northwest setting within the traditional homelands of the Kalapuya people. The UO is located in Eugene, a vibrant city of 157,000, within easy driving distance of the Pacific Coast, the Cascade Mountains, and Portland.
