Welcome to the AEI

The AEI is committed to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students. We are supported in this commitment by written statements from the President of the University of Oregon and the Dean of the College and Arts and Sciences. The greater UO community has also shown support through a video message entitled “Dear Ducks, you belong here”.
