Your Dean of Students

We are here to build a strong campus community for all. Whether you are a student, a faculty member, or staff, we are here to support you. Our resources can connect you with others to build relationships and find support from peers. The Student Conduct Code is the standard to help us maintain the integrity of our community in order to keep it safe and supportive. If you need help or would like to report a concern, please connect with us.

 

Drop-in Crisis Support

Drop-in crisis support is available Monday–Friday, 1:00–4:30 p.m., in Oregon Hall, Suite 185.

Staff can assist students in problem solving, navigating university policies and processes, and referring students to other helpful resources both on and off campus.


A COMMUNITY JUST FOR YOU

The University of Oregon is a place that welcomes everyone. No matter where you are from, what you look like, or how you identify, you are one of us and a part of our community. We know it's important to find support and feel safe with the people around you. These communities will get you started, yet there are so many more. Find your place, connect with others, and learn from each other.

Diversity and Community

Ducks Do Something

We want every Duck to be the best version of themselves. But you weren't born knowing how to navigate every situation you'll encounter while in college. That's OK. We have resources and programs here to help you make healthy decisions and support your fellow Ducks, too. It is important that we are here for each other and understand how our actions affect our community so that we all can have a positive experience together. We encourage all Ducks, if you see something, say something! Ducks Do Something! Learn more about programs and student organizations working to support a safe and healthy campus. 


Leadership and Involvement

You are a vital part of building a better community for all Ducks. We have a number of opportunities in the Dean of Students Office available for you to be a leader in your community. Maybe you want to build stronger multicultural communities or continue a legacy built on shared values. It could be providing your perspective on a committee, facilitating workshops, or student employment. Wherever your passion leads you, there are opportunities waiting.

Danny Orendorff: “Doing It Together: Queerness, Craft, Collectivity”

Surveying the past ten years of his curatorial work, Orendorff will explore the intersecting threads of DIY and/or craft-oriented cultural production, myriad histories of grassroots social-justice activism, and related theories of gender and sexuality that have together driven his research, exhibition and writing projects. From collectively-made queer videos and massive textile collaborations, to kink-inspired tableaux vivants and plein air paintings of banks on fire, Orendorff will detail past and present curatorial efforts that all pursue an aesthetic of non-normativity, cooperation, resistance and liberation. 

Danny Orendorff is a curator and writer working as Executive Director of Vox Populi, a non-profit gallery, performance space and art collective in Philadelphia, PA. Founded in 1988, Vox Populi serves as an enduring model for how a radically independent and experimental arts organization can sustain itself through collective effort and constant evolution. Formerly, Orendorff was Curator of Public Programs for the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City and Program Director for non-profit Chicago gallery Threewalls. As an independent curator, Orendorff has organized large group exhibitions for such venues as DePaul Art Museum (Chicago, IL), The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (Asheville, NC), SFCamerawork (San Franicsco, CA), and The Charlotte Street Foundation (Kansas City, MO), amongst others. He has taught in the Fiber & Material Studies Departments of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Tyler School of Art at Temple University.
