Oregon University System

The Oregon University System (OUS) is administered by the Oregon State Board of Higher Education (the "Board") and the Chancellor of the OUS, who is appointed by the Board, which is currently Melody Rose serving in interim capacity.[1] The previous chancellor was George Pernsteiner.

While previously responsible for the state's seven public universities, legislation passed in 2013 allowed Oregon public universities the option to set up their own institutional governing boards and the state's three largest universities (UO, OSU, PSU) opted for institutional boards that became effective July 1, 2014.[2] The four remaining regional universities in the OUS system (EOU, OIT, SOU, WOU) later opted for institutional boards as well, effective July 2015.[3]
