The University of Oregon, established by the Oregon legislature in 1872, is a premier public research university that serves its students and the people of Oregon, the nation, and the world through the creation and transfer of knowledge in the liberal arts, the natural and social sciences, and the professions. It is one of only two universities in the greater Pacific Northwest selected for membership in the prestigious Association of American Universities, a group of sixty-two leading public and private research universities in the United States and Canada.
Designated by the Carnegie Foundation as a top-tier research university, the UO offers 225 degree and certificate programs and hosts nearly thirty research centers, institutes, and core research facilities. With applications continuing to set records each year, the UO last fall welcomed its most well prepared and diverse freshman class.
