Making a more global UO

Making a more global University of Oregon

The Office of International Affairs works to make the UO a more global university. It is part of the normal functioning of every school, college, department and center. International Affairs 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.

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 Office of International Affairs. Please contact Dennis Galvan, vice provost for international affairs at dgalvan@uoregon.edu or Chakris Kussalanant, director of marketing and communications at chakris@uoregon.edu.

Affiliations and Partners

The Office of International Affairs 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.
