Report by the UO Senate President to the UO Senate 13 January 2010
US09/10-9 Joint administration/senate committee on State Accountability Metrics
The UO Senate directs the UO Senate President to appoint members of the University Community to a joint administration/faculty committee concerning State Accountability Metrics that may be part of a new governance structure/relationship to the State Of Oregon. The UO Senate President shall consult widely.
University of Oregon leaders are currently engaged in conversations with the chancellor, OUS presidents, and elected leaders regarding fundamental changes in how OUS institutions are funded and governed by the state. This conversation will continue to occur over the next few months and will include a dialogue with our campus community and state policy leaders. The internal conversation will focus on how the UO can continue to fulfill its critical public mission and remain accountable to the state under a more autonomous structure. The campus conversation will help reinforce the idea that under any model, the University of Oregon remains focused on meeting the needs of Oregonians.
