Message from the Dean

Affirming Support of International Scholars

At the Lundquist College of Business we are proud members of the global business community, and we echo UO President Michael Schill's message following concerns expressed by faculty, students, and staff about the U.S. administration's new executive orders regarding foreign nationals residing in the United States.

International collaboration and scholarship are key to making the world better through business, and we pledge to support our students, faculty, and staff regardless of country of origin or religious background. We aim to build bridges and create paths to success, not block them.

Eugene graduate students with individual concerns are encouraged to contact Graduate Programs Office at 302 Peterson Hall, call 541-346-3306, or email Director of Graduate Affairs and Student Experience Jennie Leander at

Concerned undergraduate students may contact or visit Undergraduate Programs at 203 Peterson Hall, call 541-346-3303, or email Director of Advising Heather Bottorff at

Portland graduate students may contact Assistant Dean of Students and Career Services, Linda Favero, suite 241 in the White Stag Block. Call 503-412-3704 or email

Additionally, the Counseling Center is committed to providing confidential therapy and support to those affected by U.S. travel and residency policies and practices as well as anti-immigrant rhetoric.

We have also compiled a list of additional resources (PDF).

You are part of our community. You are welcome here. We stand with you.
