It’s not every day that a benefactor makes a $500 million gift to a public university in Oregon. Since the October 2016 announcement that Phil and Penny Knight have promised to give $50 million each year for the next decade (matched by other private donations and fundraising), there has been a buzz of anticipation around this new addition to the University of Oregon. Groundbreaking on this billion-dollar new scientific and research campus is expected in February 2018.

The Springfield School District plans to open a new Hamlin Middle School building this winter. It’s much larger than the current 70-year old campus and will help the school focus on STEAM—science, engineering, technology, arts and math.

University of Oregon President Michael Schill was scheduled Friday to announce a $50 million gift to the university. But that plan was cut short after a group of protesting students swarmed the stage.  

Shouting "nothing about us without us," the students broke up the gift announcement program just minutes after it began.

The students said they disrupted the program to speak about campus safety for students of color and rising tuition costs.
