Who We Are
SSEM’s mission is to build a diverse, exceptional, and inclusive campus community. We are committed to providing access, affordability, and essential services that support all students to succeed as engaged, healthy, life-long learners at the University of Oregon and beyond. We aspire to serve our community with excellence, integrity, innovation, and compassion.
The Division of Student Services and Enrollment Management advances the University of Oregon's tradition of excellence by enrolling and retaining high-achieving scholars from Oregon, across the country, and around the world. We work on behalf of prospective students, current students, and their families through each phase of the enrollment process: the college search, admission, registration, financial aid and scholarship, orientation, University testing center, campus life and onward to graduation.
The UO continues to achieve unprecedented levels of success in enrollment. The past years have seen the UO set historic records in the academic quality and diversity of incoming classes.
For a decade, the incoming class was the most diverse in university history, and traditionally under-represented students accounted for 36 percent of the class. The new class also offers socio-economic diversity—this was the largest class of incoming freshmen from Oregon who are eligible for federal Pell Grants, which are intended for students from lower-income households. On the tenth year of Pathway Oregon and the sixth year since we redesigned the program we have enrolled more than 800 new students, which is a new record by over 100 students. This is the largest Pathway Oregon class ever and represents a doubling of the freshmen class since we redesigned the program in 2013. The average GPA of incoming freshmen remains exponentially higher than 10 years ago. But we don't stop there. We care and support students while they live and learn on campus in University Housing or visit University Health Services for support with counseling or health needs. We also support community education through our Continuing and Professional Education program.
Student Life Cycle
Student Life Cycle "The Oregon O" is the ultimate symbol for learning, an unending process throughout our lives. Here we see it reflected in the student life cycle, a process without an end. Prospective students make the decision to become Oregon Ducks, go on to achieve success here, then graduate. Through their academic, career, community, and financial contributions, alumni and donors fuel the growth and development of new students. We value our alumni and encourage them to give the wheel another spin. Welcome to our circle; or as we call it The Oregon O.
