Higher Education Update

The 2011 legislative session is scheduled to wrap on June 30, if not sooner. Before it does, we’re looking at the bills affecting higher education that are still on the table.

Two bills affecting higher education funding and a new decision-making body are moving through the legislature.

The state higher education operating budget is expected to pass without surprises.

Static between University of Oregon President Richard Lariviere and the Oregon State Board of Higher Education came to light in a pared down renewal contract for Lariviere. The board will present him a contract that conditionally extends his position for just one year.

What changes to higher education during this legislative session will affect you?
