Dave Frohnmayer retires as University of Oregon president in June, having provided outstanding leadership during his 15-year tenure. He has raised more than $1 billion in private philanthropy for UO and added a host of new centers and institutes.

Fifteen completed projects include the new Portland facility in the White Stag Block building, the Integrative Science Complex, the William W. Knight Law Center, the Lillis Business Complex, the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, the MarAbel B. Frohnmayer Music Building, expansion of Autzen Stadium and major upgrades to historic Hayward Field. Currently underway are four projects including the HEDCO Education building and the new Matthew Knight Arena; and three additional projects are in the planning phase, including the Ford Alumni Center.
