UO education & research top scandal-ridden Ducks 3 to 1 in $1.7B fund drive

Thanks to Phil and Penny Knight’s $500M Knight Campus pledge. An anonymous post on UO’s official Around the O blog has the data:

The UO’s funding campaign continues to be the most ambitious in the state’s history. The $1.7 billion to date doubles the total achieved during the UO’s last campaign, which concluded in 2009, and climbed to more than 85 percent of the university’s goal in just the third public year of the campaign.

To date, 74 percent of giving has been designated for academics and 26 percent for intercollegiate athletics.

Of course Rob Mullens, Mark Helfrich, and Dana Altman made out pretty well for themselves anyway, especially after the appropriate inexcellence adjustments.
