February Unit Meetings: Public Postsecondary Education in Oregon
LWVOR’s current postsecondary education position dates from 1985 and focuses primarily on funding. It is seriously out of date. State funding support nationwide has declined drastically since that time, and Oregon’s universities and community colleges have been especially hard hit. In addition, major changes in policy and governance of our universities have been adopted since 2011.Please join us for a consensus discussion at February units to help LWVOR develop a new position to address the changing needs of postsecondary education in the 21st century. Please read the study report mailed to all members in January. An executive summary and consensus questions are included in this issue of the Clackson.
