The University of Oregon hosts over 250 visiting scholars - including professors, researchers, and short-term scholars - each year from around the world. These researchers, lecturers and professors bring a wide range of expertise and experience to our campus and contribute to the University's mission and academic objectives.
The first step in becoming a visiting scholar is to contact the UO academic department that best matches your area of specialization. Your UO academic department will assist with the documents needed to apply as a visiting scholar.
