Your Home at the University of Oregon

Parent and Family Programs was created in 2005 to offer support and partnership to our extended Duck family. We work to keep UO parents and families engaged through communications, membership, networking, events, and philanthropy.

Parents and families play an important role in student success, and we value your partnership with us as part of your student's educational experience. We sincerely appreciate your involvement and are here for you. Please contact us if we can support you in any way.
