UO, Graduate Students, and Proposed Changes to Tax Law

The University of Oregon Graduate School is concerned about elements of the proposed tax reform being considered in the U.S. Congress – in particular, the possible taxation of graduate student tuition waivers that is a part of the House bill. The Graduate School and the University know that if this measure passes, it will make grad school unaffordable for many of our grad students. Please see UO President Michael Schill’s response to the proposed tax reform plan and how several aspects of it will hurt higher education in Oregon. You can also read Interim Dean Sara Hodges’ recent email to current grad students about the issue, which includes possible steps for advocacy. The progress of this legislation is being followed closely. Once the University knows which parts of the proposed reform become law, we will work on strategies to help support our graduate students, who are such a vital and crucial part of the UO. ​
