A note regarding “Waiving Confidentiality” – Waiving this right means that if someone requests a particular book you have checked out, that person may contact you to determine when the book will be available. In many cases, the person who contacts you will be a colleague. Waiving your right to confidentiality will help you and your peers trace materials currently on loan from the library.
The TLC Center provides assistance to students in a variety of ways: academic courses (Introduction to University Studies and College Reading Skills), research skills, speed-reading, writing and math workshops, and general study skills. http://tlc.uoregon.edu/
The State Museum of Anthropology sometimes has part-time positions for Archaeologists for field and lab workers during the school year, and full-time temporary work in the summer. OSMA is a separate and self-supporting section of the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History and conducts archaeological research under contract with state agencies and a few large corporations, in compliance with federal and state cultural resource protection laws, as well as through grants and other awards. The museum presently handles work for the Oregon Department of Transportation highway projects, and other large development projects. A huge amount of research on Oregon prehistory is represented by these endeavors. ANTH 549 (Cultural Resource Management) provides excellent background for working at OSMA.

All students are encouraged to purchase health insurance coverage. Student health insurance is available through the University Health Center (http://healthcenter.uoregon.edu/Insurance.aspx). International students are automatically billed for this insurance, unless they have submitted a waiver verifying adequate coverage of their own. Students awarded a GTF obtain insurance through the GTFF, see: http://gradschool.uoregon.edu/node/163.
