Community in Every Corner

Each community is different, but important in making sure everyone has a place on our campus. What would your college experience be without people around you to share it with? Our communities and resources are here to help you find those people who will make the most of your time here at the UO. It could be connecting you with academic resources, overcoming life's hurtles together, or just having a group to spend time with on a sunny day. We are committed to making our campus welcoming for all.

Black Cultural Center

Spurred by student demands, and made possible by grassroots support and donor gifts, the new Lyllye Reynolds-Parker Black Cultural Center will be an academic, cultural, and social home for the UO’s Black students and the community. The center is named for Lyllye Reynolds-Parker, a civil rights activist and UO alumna who touched countless lives of UO students in her career as an academic advisor.

Our communities are not built on a binary. Each person has a unique combination of identities that make them, well, them. We are proud to have you in our community and we want you to be proud of your community. LGBT Education and Support Services is here to support you through your college experience and for you to get involved in a community where you are free to be you.
