A Brighter Future

The newly launched UO Pacific Northwest Just Futures Institute for Racial and Climate Justice was made possible by a historic $4.52 million grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Directed by School of Planning, Public Policy and Management Assistant Professor John Arroyo, leaders in the College of Design are joining forces with the College of Arts and Sciences, and community-based partners, to do the deep, meaningful, and urgent equity work that will envision and realize a just future for the Pacific Northwest.

Ecology

We tackle urgent ecological challenges through many lenses. Revealing, understanding, caring for, and reviving vibrant ecosystems and a healthy environment for all species is a deep vein running through our work.

Speculation

We are dynamic explorers with diverse tools. Through imagination, experimentation, analysis, and creation, we grapple with thorny problems, discover new interpretations, and open uncharted territory.

Justice

We are dedicated to building a more just and inclusive future. Anti-racist actions and social equity questions are embedded in what we do—engaging civic life, shaping the built environment, and creating new imaginaries.

Wonder

We ask bold questions and make unexpected connections, aiming to engage, enrich, and inspire through the things we make and the stories we tell. Catalyzing curiosity, awe, and empathy opens new potentials.

Map Your Future

Whether creating in the studio, doing fieldwork and internships or studying objects at the museum, College of Design students are learning hands on and working directly with faculty.
