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. 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.
The University of Oregon is planning for a responsible and safe to return to in-person, on-campus instruction, in compliance and coordination with federal, state, and local orders and guidance. Visit the links below for more information.
Many students are dealing with serious financial disruptions related to the national response to COVID-19. If you are one of those students, please complete the application process for the Federal Emergency CARES Act Grant through the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships.
If you are still experiencing a financial crisis after completing the application process or if you are ineligible for the CARES Act Grant, 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.
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.
