Upsilon Pi Epsilon Honor Society

Upsilon Pi Epsilon Association

UPE was first organized in 1967. UPE is the first and only, existing international honor society in the Computing and Information disciplines. As the first Computer Science department in the Pacific Northwest, the University of Oregon maintains a chapter of UPE. The mission of UPE is to recognize academic excellence at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the Computing and Information Disciplines. It is the express purpose of Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE) to promote the computing and information disciplines and to encourage their contribution to the enhancement of knowledge.

The Olwen William Harris Endowment Fund has been established at UO to help students who cannot afford to pay initiation fees. To receive money from this fund, students must complete a request form, available from the Office of Student Life. An advisory committee reviews all requests and dispenses the awards.
