Update on Thursday, March 19: University of Oregon Vice President for Student Life R. Kevin Marbury sent a statement to students Thursday evening, formally announcing the cancellation of in-person commencement activities this June to prevent spreading the COVID-19 coronavirus.

The University of Oregon will provide online classes for the entirety of spring term in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus, UO President Michael Schill said in a Thursday afternoon email to students.  

Every month, faculty members from the University of Oregon’s different colleges are joined by student leaders, classified staff and administrators to discuss topics they deem important to the success of UO.
