|TRADITION | THE DUCK | CHEERLEADERS | THE PIT CREW | THE BAND|
The Oregon Sports mascot and the UO Cheerleaders serve as official ambassadors for the University of Oregon and University of Oregon Athletic Department. The Cheerleaders and the Duck proudly represented the university and careful consideration is given on where, when, and why they makes appearances.
The primary role of the Duck is to represent University of Oregon Athletics, promote the teams, galvanize the crowd, and cheer on the Ducks. As unique as the Duck is in college athletics so is the University's relationship with Disney Enterprises, owner of the Duck. In 1942, Walt Disney gave permission to the University to use images created by Disney Studios as the University's sports mascot. Decisions regarding permitting the Duck to appear at events outside of Athletic events and official university functions are thoughtfully considered and must fit within the University's strategic promotional goals and objectives and protect that decision which granted UO permission to use the Duck.
UO Cheerleaders and the mascot lead busy lives as they balance their student responsibilities with their cheerleading. Their availability as university representatives for events beyond their official duties must fit not only within their already busy schedules but also within the goals of the UO Game Day Experience and Promotions office.
The primary role of the Duck and the cheerleaders is to actively support and extend the mission and knowledge of the University of Oregon and its Athletic Department. The closer your request for an appearance aligns with the goal of promoting and supporting the university the better we are able to positively review your request.
