A successor to current Oregon University System Chancellor Melody Rose was chosen during a meeting of the Board of Higher Education on July 11. Catherine Dyck, current vice chancellor of Finance & Administration for OUS, was appointed as acting chancellor and chief financial officer by a unanimous vote.
Dyck’s term, which will begin on Aug. 16, will follow the departure of Rose, who has been appointed as the new president of Marylhurst University.
Rose’s departure is one of a series of changes affecting OUS in the coming year. In 2013, the Oregon legislature passed Senate Bill 270, which allowed Portland State, Oregon State University and the University of Oregon to establish their own institutional governing boards, subsequently removing them from OUS on July 1. Southern Oregon University, Western Oregon University, Oregon Tech and Eastern Oregon University will follow suit and establish their own governing boards by July 1, 2015.
