Dr. Yvette Alex-Assensoh created the L.A.C.E. framework to help guide our academic discourse at UO. L.A.C.E. is based on the following values:

  • Love:  Leading with kindness and reacting with patience.
  • Authenticity: Allowing your unique essence and true self to shine through.
  • Courage: Moving forward in the face of fear.
  • Empathy: Holding space for others.


These values enrich the scholarly conversation and hold all Ducks accountable to academic integrity.
