Supporting UO Students

The University of Oregon is open for in-person classes and events, ​and we are here to help you. Students needing support are encouraged to reach out to their advisor, dean of students office, ​or other members of support staff on campus.

Office of the Dean of Students COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Updates

In order to promote social distancing to limit the spread of COVID-19, the Office of the Dean of Students (DOS) is currently operating with reduced staffing levels and has transitioned to offering most services remotely. Thank you for your understanding and patience as together we work to sustain the health and well-being of our campus community.

We are committed to maintaining high levels of support and resources for our students. During this time, our staff will continue to check and respond to voicemails and emails. Please call 541-346-3216 if you need assistance.

Financial Crisis Support

If you are experiencing a financial crisis please fill out our online intake form, as you may be eligible to receive financial support from the Students in Crisis Fund. Once you complete our intake form, a Dean of Students staff member will follow up with you within a few days to discuss your situation.

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.

 


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.

October 24 2021–June 5 2022

Are you LGBTQ+? Are you also neurodivergent? This club may be for you!

Neurodivergent is a term referencing anybody who has:

mental/emotional trauma

a mental illness/disorder

a personality disorder

a neurological/intellectual/learning disability/disorder

physical brain trauma

Many people within the LGBTQ+ community are neurodivergent in some way, and it can be difficult to find spaces for folks to feel safe and accepted while discussing these topics. This subgroup is a good place to hang out, talk about your experiences, discuss the intersection between queerness and neurodivergency, and to have a good time!

 

In order to join, we host our meetings over the LGBTESS Discord Server! To join, fill out the survey here: https://oregon.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5jdSlf3KXEuduOW

October 18–December 6

Meet with Counseling Services Jingqing Liu, who specializes in working with international students, for Let’s Talk on Mondays, 2-4PM. Let’s Talk is a service that provides easy access to free, informal, and confidential one-on-one consultation with a University Counseling Services staff member. See our website for six additional Let’s Talk days/times offered throughout the week.

Let’s Talk is especially helpful for students who:


Have a specific concern and would like to consult with someone about it.
Would like on-the-spot consultation rather than ongoing counseling.
Would like to consult with a UCS staff member about what actual therapy looks like.
Would like to meet with one of our UCS identity-based specialists.
Have a concern about a friend or family member and would like some ideas about what to do.


How does Let’s (Tele)Talk work?

While typically offered in various campus locations, Let’s (Tele)Talk will be offered via Zoom. As a drop-in service, there is no need to schedule an appointment and no paperwork to be completed. Students are seen individually on a first-come, first-served basis at the times listed below. There may be a wait in the Zoom waiting room if the Let’s (Tele)Talk staff member is meeting with another student. Please wait and we will be with you as soon as we can. Let’s Talk appointments are brief (usually between 15-30 minutes) and are meant to be used on an as-needed basis.
