University of Oregon

For information about weekly meetings for our current campaigns email our chapter chair Ivan Chen at iivanchentw@gmail.com

OSPIRG is effective because we teach students the skills they need to get their voices heard on campus and in Salem and Washington D.C. Get involved to build skills, meet great people, and make a difference!

OSPIRG is a statewide student-directed and student-funded non-profit that works on issues that affect all Oregonians. OSPIRG has been on the campus of the University of Oregon since 1971 when students worked together to bring about a new way of addressing important political issues. The organization was influenced by the idea that there are more problems than we should tolerate and more solutions than we implement. OSPIRG trains students to stand up to powerful special interests and to make tangible impacts in their campus community and beyond.

 

Current Campaigns

OSPIRG is currently running public education and advocacy campaigns on four issues: 100% Renewable Energy, No Pipelines, Save Student Aid, and Big Money out of Politics.
