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 grassroots up, to fundraise on a large scale, and make the whole of our global endeavors much greater than the sum of the parts.


Foreign Engagement in International Research and Activities

At the University of Oregon, the open exchange of ideas and making connections across the globe are important to us all. In recent years, there have been concerns raised by the federal government over inappropriate foreign state influence on research conducted at universities in the United States. Given those concerns and the ever-changing landscape of federal regulations, we encourage all faculty and staff to look at the guidelines and requirements for foreign engagement in international research relationships and activities. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Dennis Galvan, dean and vice provost of the Division of Global Engagement, at dgalvan@uoregon.edu.

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 on 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.
