The University of Oregon (UO) is one of just 62 research institutions in the U.S. and Canada that are members in the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU). As the only AAU institution in the state of Oregon, the UO is home to nearly 90 graduate degree programs, many of which, due to their outstanding faculty and research accomplishments, have received national and international recognition: According to the Graham-Diamond Report, the faculty in the UO's College of Arts and Sciences ranks 15th in the nation among public research universities. US News and World Report consistently ranks the College of Education graduate program as among the best in the U.S. In the 2009 edition of "America's Best Graduate Schools," the program ranked fifth in the nation overall and second among public institutions, and the Special Education program was ranked third among all schools and second among public institutions for the 9th consecutive year. In addition, the College of Education was the top school, public or private, in the amount of funded research per faculty member. U.S. News & World Report has rated the graduate programs in the Charles H. Lundquist College of Business among the top 10.

Back in 1859, Congress required Oregon’s founders to establish a public university. That university is us.
Oregon’s pioneers were more concerned with eking out a living than in the refinements of higher education. But in the early 1870s, Judge Joshua Walton convinced residents of Eugene City to become home to what would become the fledgling state’s flagship university.
Then, as now, our roots were in our community. Farmers sold produce and mules and held church socials to scrape together $27,500, enough to buy an 18-acre piece of ground that became our campus.
Construction on our first building began in 1873. Five faculty members taught the first group of students in 1876. Two years later, we produced our first graduating class: John C. Whiteaker, George S. Washburne, Robert S. Bean, Matthew S. Wallis, and Nellie A. Condon.
Since then we’ve awarded diplomas to tens of thousands of young men and women—geologists and writers, painters and chemists, innovators and rule-breakers, lawmakers and dancers, dreamers and doers.
We’ve produced eight governors, 18 Pulitzer Prizes, 20 Rhodes Scholars, 13 Olympic medalists, nine Academy Awards, nine Emmys, and a Heisman Trophy winner.
Today, more than 24,000 students, from all 50 states and more than 95 countries, study at Oregon.
