The University of Oregon has a strong commitment to academic excellence, a worldwide reputation in athletics, and exceptional research and athletic facilities. In the UO’s emerging Sport and Wellness Initiative, students, faculty, and partners interact, learn, research, and work together to make the most of those assets, propelling the university to international leadership in the fields of health and human performance.

This issue of Oregon Quarterly explores UO-based experiences and educational opportunities under the initiative—drawing from human physiology, prevention science, community well-being, data analytics, product design, athletics, sports industry expertise and more—that aim to help people live longer, healthier, and more enjoyable lives.
