Making a more global UO

Making a more global University of Oregon

The Division of Global Engagement works to make the UO a more global university. It is part of the normal functioning of every school, college, department and center. Global Engagement supports and integrates the wide range of international engagements, global-scale projects, and transnational partnerships launched and maintained in our many academic units and partnerships.

The Division of Global Engagement stands in support of the Muslim community and the people of Christchurch, New Zealand in the aftermath of the horrible shootings at two mosques. A hateful attack like this on any religious community is an attack on all of us. This is an affront to the fundamental values of inclusion, mutual respect, and human dignity that are central to our mission at the University of Oregon.  

We remain committed to the work of encouraging cross-cultural understanding and respect for people of all faiths and nationalities through international education. We will continue to commit ourselves to building trust and understanding across all communities.

Anyone who needs support is encouraged to reach out to the International Student and Scholar Services team by calling 541-346-3206 or by emailing intl@uoregon.edu.

Affiliations and Partners

The Division of Global Engagement at the University of Oregon listens to, understands, and supports the wide range of international projects and global aspirations of our academic partners and affiliates. We make matches where we can, propose synergies, and suggest unexpected collaborations. We look for ways to develop UO international strategy from the grass roots up, to fundraise on a large scale, and make the whole of our global endeavors much greater than the sum of the parts.


Questions about Executive Orders on Immigration

UO is carefully tracking changes in immigration rules since the issuance of the third version of the so-called “travel ban” (issued September 24, 2017). We realize that many people in our community are quite concerned and need a one-stop location for answers to the most common questions about this changing situation. Please find such questions, and our current best answers at this FAQ page.

Please share your suggestions for additional topics or refinements to the information here with the Division of Global Engagement. Please contact Dennis Galvan, dean and vice provost for global engagement at dgalvan@uoregon.edu.
