The state-of-the-art, White Stag Block serves as the UO's hub of activity, discussion, and debate in Portland with lectures, exhibitions, seminars, classes and other public events
You’ve probably heard about Portland. The hipsters, the lines around the block to choose a doughnut…that it works hard to stay weird. Sure, those things are true, but there’s so much more. It buzzes with activity, innovation, creativity and connections. It’s the hardworking powerhouse of the region, where companies from around the world choose to have headquarters. It’s humble and approachable. It’s legit.

Other departments bring the resources and partnerships of campus to alumni, donors, friends and prospective students.
