Campaign Oregon Brings in $160 Million for CAS
The UO's highly successful seven year Campaign Oregon, which ended December 31, 2008, has enormously benefited the College of Arts and Sciences. Overall, the campaign brought in more than $850 million for the university. And it's not just the dollar amount that's significant.
According to UO President Dave Frohnmayer, "during this campaign, the amount of money the university receives annually from private gifts began to exceed the amount of revenue we receive from the state."
More than $160 million of the campaign total has benefited the College of Arts and Sciences -- or more than double the original CAS campaign goal of $75 million. The pie chart shows how the dollars have been allocated.
