Carnegie Global Oregon

Carnegie Global Oregon

Carnegie Global Oregon focuses on ethics and the challenges of living in a world marked by complex social, political, and environmental issues. This FIG partners with the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs as we explore human rights in the United States and around the world.

The Carnegie Global Oregon DEEP-DIVE FIG continues for three terms, and is the only FIG that also has some students in their cohort who are part of an Academic Residential Community (ARC).

Carnegie Global Oregon students will all be enrolled in the same courses. Students who do NOT want to live with the community will sign up through the FIG Program. Students who want to be in the ARC and live together in the residence halls will sign up through Housing. Please note that ARC selection will supersede your housing preferences for special-interest halls and room types. For more information, and instructions on how to apply to be a part of the ARC, visit

After the fall FIG courses, students enroll in 1-credit seminars in winter and spring to continue exploring the CGO theme. The majority of CGO students remain active in this vibrant learning community throughout their years at the university. This provides a supportive mix for sophomores, juniors, and seniors who meet weekly for class and a meal to explore areas of ethical concern. For more information, visit
