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

Update March 23, 11:30 a.m.: Oregon Governor Kate Brown calls for Oregonians to stay home, closing specific retail businesses and requiring social distancing in most cases. The executive order took immediate effect on March 23, 2020. We are currently reviewing information on this page to ensure it is consistent with the order.

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. DOS will also continue to offer crisis response drop-in hours remotely, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.; please call 541-346-3216 if you need assistance.

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.



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.
