Permission Form for Student Submissions to Scholars' Bank

Scholars' Bank is the open access repository for the intellectual work of faculty, students, and staff at the University of Oregon. Theses and dissertations reside here, along with other department-sanctioned student work. You are invited to submit your thesis, dissertation or project to ensure that it will be freely and openly accessible, and preserved over time.
