LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Institutional oversight of Eastern Oregon University will change in coming months, and local community members have an opportunity to help shape the proposal for a new governance structure at their university.
A public forum is set for 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12 at the Stage Door Theater at 1010 Adams Ave. Refreshments will be provided.
EOU has entered the discussion driven by the passage of Senate Bill 270, which creates governing boards for the University of Oregon, Oregon State University and Portland State University.
Options on the table for EOU include establishing a consortium board, an independent institutional board or becoming a branch or affiliate campus overseen by one of the state’s larger universities.
Input will help EOU’s President Bob Davies weigh the advantages and disadvantages of the different models, and ultimately recommend an appropriate governing structure to the State Board of Higher Education.
For more background on the discussion and to participate in an online survey, go to www.eou.edu/governance.
