Choose to Be more.

Realizing the potential of equality requires action.

Only with a true diversity of individuals, experiences and ideas can there be the potential for The Duck Store, the University of Oregon and our community to advance. That progress for all is impossible until we act against racism, bigotry and ignorance oppressing members of our society. We commit to making choices that empower communities who face discrimination and marginalization, and seek out team members and partners who stand with us in a drive towards equality.

Our Social & Racial Justice Commitments

The Duck Store is a nonprofit store that exists to serve the needs of University of Oregon students, faculty and staff. Racism deeply impacts individuals we are here to serve, and we have an obligation to be part of the solution. We commit to:

  • Supporting minority-owned business partners

  • Increasing employment and board of directors diversity

  • Increasing diversity and representation in advertising

  • Supporting community organizations and programs working to address systemic racism

  • Soliciting input and suggestions from all levels of our organization to address issues of racial inequality

  • Open for All
