在1844年卫理公会的任务委员会关闭了这个任务后，他们把这所劳工学校卖给了俄勒冈研究所的受托人。这个研究所随后被命名为俄勒冈研究所，并设立了第一届立法会。这个立法机构计划在塞勒姆开会，并协助在美国的赞助下为第一个法院提供庇护。威拉米特大学（Willamette University）的发展宗旨是永不止息的教育希望，这个教育需要提供给社区的孩子，使他们能繁荣昌盛并继续给他们的土地增肥。这所大学一开始就直接与在俄勒冈州的法律和政府联系在一起，并帮助教育了社会上的各种领导人，商人，艺术家和其他贡献者。威廉姆特大学于1883年建立了第一所法学院，并于1866年建立了第一所医学院（Goodchild，et al。，2014）。这所医学院是在西北太平洋建立的。这所学校后来与俄勒冈大学医学院合并。
Discussing about the missionaries that arrived at the place and they started to encourage the communities. These communities were having various dieses and these dieses were passing from generation to generation and they did not have any knowledge about these dieses. Various communities are devastated because of these dieses and their widespread in the communities. The dieses also spread in the millennia fertile and got deep in the Willamette valley. This made various Indian children to suffer and various casualties were observed. This was the time when Jason Lee wanted to open an institute that would protect the future generations from such disasters and would prepare them for the future (Springmeier, 1998). Mission was only to protect the community by educating them providing them with some skill that could help them in developing a bright future.
Development of Willamette University
During 1844 Methodist mission board closed this mission and they sold this labor school to the trustees of the Oregon institute. This institute was then named as the Oregon institute and housed the first session of the legislature. This legislature was planned for meeting in Salem and helped in providing shelter to the first court during the territory under the sponsorship of US. Willamette University was developed with a mission of never ending hope for education that needed to be provided to the children of the community so they can prosper and continue giving fertility to their lands. This university in the beginning was directly linked with the laws and government present on the Oregon territory and it helped in educating various leaders, businessman, artists and other contributors of the society. Willamette University established the first law school in 1883 and they also established their first school of medicine in 1866 (Goodchild, et al. 2014). This school of medicine was established in Pacific Northwest. This school later merged with the medical school of the University of Oregon.
