UO Day at the Capitol set for April 11

The University of Oregon will hold its biennial UO Day at the Oregon Capitol on April 11. Graduates, students, faculty, and staff will highlight UO programs and the university’s service to the state through displays in the Capitol Galleria, student performances in the House and Senate, and visits with legislators.  Campus groups participating in the day will include the award-winning Gospel Choir, the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, the Museum of Natural and Cultural History, the Office of Research, Innovation & Graduate Education (RIGE), the Solar Energy Center, the Center for Sustainable Material Chemistry, CAMCOR, the Oregon Bach Festival, PathwayOregon, the Holden Center, and the Sustainable Cities Initiative. The Duck will also be on hand and will be available for individual photo-ops in the Oregon Daily Emerald Photo Booth.

House floor consideration of resolutions honoring the Bach Festival’s Helmuth Rilling and Royce Saltzman are considered likely.  Advocates, joined by UO President Michael Gottfredson, will talk with legislators about the reorganization of higher education and the need for added bonding capacity to support the Science Commons project.
