Chapman Hall

Chapman Hall Renovation

With the support of university leadership, the Oregon State legislature, and generous alumni, historic Chapman Hall is undergoing a complete interior renovation. When we move back in January 2018, the building will be positioned to provide a top quality experience to CHC students for the next 50 years.

Student Internships

The CHC experience involves learning in and out of the classroom. Internships provide students the opportunity to test drive a career, and connect with working professionals. We actively communicate internship opportunities to current students. If you would like to recruit CHC students for your internship, let us know.

Faculty are one of the most important parts of the student experience. Your time here wouldn't have been the same without that special professor who inspired you, and made each class an adventure. Meet the CHC faculty who are challenging, supporting and making memories with the next generation of honors college students.

CHC Students Present Papers to the Carnegie Council for Ethics
Two Clark Honors College students, Rachel Grant '16 (Japanese, economics, Asian studies) and Michael Enseki-Frank '16 (economics, math, Japanese minor), were selected by the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs as “Ethics Fellows for the Future” after they were nominated by two University of Oregon faculty members. Rachel and Michael were invited to present research papers at a conference hosted by the Council in fall 2015 on the topic “An Ethical Dialogue between Asia and the West: Philosophical Traditions, Moral Contentions, and the Future of U.S.–Asia Relations.”

Decolonizing Research: The Northern Paiute History Project
Who determines what goes into history books, and what doesn't? Two dedicated faculty are on a mission to help students bring to light an alternative historical narrative.
Course instructors Kevin Hatfield and Jennifer O’Neal have partnered with tribal elders, spiritual leaders, language instructors, Museum and Culture and Heritage Department staff, and many other tribal community members and visiting scholars to develop a set of shared research protocols and ethics to guide student research.

Clark Honors College Advisory Council on Chapman Hall steps
Alumni Advisory Council

The Clark Honors College experience does not end with graduation. Honors college students remain close with each other and with the University of Oregon long after they have completed their undergraduate degrees. 
Our graduates are represented by an active Advisory Council, including representatives from a wide variety of backgrounds and professional careers, who lend their guidance, enthusiasm, and insight to the college as we work to make the next 50 years as memorable as the last.
Giving Back by Paying it Forward

"You are in part who you are today because of your time in the honors college, whatever that may have brought you, whatever field you may have been in. And I really believe in the concept of paying it forward.

If somebody has done something for you, or you have accomplished something because you have stood on the shoulders of others, then you can't really pay it back, but you can pay it forward."

—Margaret Moore, BA '61
