From the first day that Eric Allen stepped foot onto the University of Oregon campus, he had a vision that the University of Oregon journalism graduates must be the “soundest thinkers of their generation.” This mandate holds true today as our graduates go forth to tell stories that inspire change, win Pulitzer Prizes, conduct influential research, and hold top positions of leadership in media organizations throughout the nation and across the globe.

Now as we celebrate 100 years as a School of Journalism and Communication, we look back on how far we’ve come and where we’re heading in the future.
