Your Global Connection

The Division of Global Engagement is connected to every school, college, department, and center at the University of Oregon. The academic units within the Division support a wide range of international engagement activities, global-scale projects, and transnational partnerships benefitting both students and faculty.

The coronavirus pandemic has impacted all of us in unique ways, changing how we live, learn, and connect. However, our mission to provide a global connection for all students, faculty, and the campus community has not wavered. Together, we'll get through this.

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.

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.
