What Will Your Story Be?

What you do on campus and how you get involved in our communities is entirely up to you. Every year begins with the networking event Weaving New Beginnings, where you can find opportunities and a community to support you. Do you want to focus on building strong relationships through a program focused on succeeding at the UO? Or maybe you want to be involved in celebrating legacy and cultural heritage through major events on campus. Whatever your interests are, there are opportunities and a community for you. You get to choose how your successful college experience is defined. The Multicultural Events and Programming team is here to help you get there.


Multicultural Events and Programs

Throughout the year there are a variety of events and programs hosted by students and community members focused on sharing experiences and discussions around culture and heritage with the campus community.

Weaving New Beginnings

A networking reception to welcome new students, faculty, and staff of color. This event has kicked off our fall term for more than 25 years and has become an exciting campus tradition. All are welcome. 

Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration

Every year the campus comes together to celebrate the lasting legacy of Dr. King's work. With award celebrations, a community march, service project, and a keynote speaker this celebration brings our community together to honor our shared vision to continue moving forward and pays tribute to the individuals who have bravely stood for justice and peace.

Raices Unida Youth Conference

Latinx high schoolers from around the state of Oregon gather for a full-day conference to connect with each other and learn about access to higher education.
