Daily Update

Welcome to Willamette, new Bearcats!

Carol Long, Provost and Senior Vice President

A special welcome to our new students, faculty and staff in the Atkinson Graduate School of Management, the College of Arts & Sciences, the College of Law and the Claremont School of Theology who are arriving this week and next.

To all of our students: Whether you are attending orientation and classes remotely or in person, our faculty and staff are working tirelessly to make sure your classroom and community experiences will be positive, productive and transformative this year.

A special thank you to all who have spent the last months working to adapt the programming of Opening Days, Compass Week and the Willamette Law orientation to accommodate the university's COVID-19 measures.

If you haven't already watched our "Return to Campus" video, please do so. It will help you better understand the Well U Agreement that affirms our commitment to care for ourselves and others by wearing our masks and maintaining social distancing.


Non nobis solum nati sumus — Not unto ourselves alone are we born.

Best wishes! We'll see you soon in person and on Zoom.
