After four high-energy years the University of Oregon’s programming at the White Stag Block in Portland has generated considerable results, as challenges and opportunities have ripened.

Facilitating the work of a 14-member Planning Team, The Canoe Group designed and guided a process of research, discovery and dialogue to produce a Situational Analysis. Over 60 external and internal interviews, a review of institutional planning documents and the collection of unit baseline reports generated an overview of evolving strengths, weaknesses and lessons learned. The 266-page Executive Report and 65-page Summary Report provided UO leadership with a well-documented perspective, increasing alignment and understanding between academic and service units as to the current opportunities of the University of Oregon Portland.
