Research in the Arts and Sciences

The research activity—and reputation—of faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences is the basis for the UO’s status as a Carnegie Research I institution and a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU). In the past five years alone, faculty accolades in the College of Arts and Sciences have included:

  • One faculty member elected President of the American Association for the Advancement of Science
  • Four faculty elected to the National Academy of Sciences
  • Five faculty elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences
  • Two faculty named Guggenheim Fellows
  • Ten faculty elected to the American Association for the Advancement of Science
  • Six Fulbright scholars

All tenured-related faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences, across the Humanities, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences are required to be engaged in an active research program and make original contributions to their respective fields of knowledge. Many are involved in collaborations in one of the two dozen research institutes and centers affiliated with the College of Arts and Sciences.
