Officers of Administration Council (OAC) connects University of Oregon employees through living and learning, and thus has incredible capacity to create community.  The OAC is committed to bringing Officers of Administration and UO units together and building professional community at the Annual OA Strategic Leadership Conference and throughout the year.

The Officers of Administration Council and Human Resources are offering an opportunity for Officers of Administration to develop professionally, to identify solutions for issues affecting higher education, and to share their expertise with their colleagues.

This year the OA council will be hosting a day-long conference with multiple breakout sessions on different topics.
