Are Oregon universities efficient at producing graduates? Study raises questions, but state leader says all's well

The University of Oregon and Oregon State University are spending a lot more than they used to, about $60,000, to produce a college graduate, a new study shows.
Portland State University, by contrast, remains one of the most efficient public research universities in the nation, spending just $40,700 on education and related expenses for every graduate it produces, the report says.
The study, "Trends in College Spending: 2001-2011" by the American Institutes of Research, suggests that two of Oregon's three biggest universities are headed in the wrong direction at a time when the state is amping up pressure on universities to generate more graduates per dollar. In 2006, Oregon universities were some of the best in the nation at producing graduates economically, but as of 2011, OSU looks pretty average and UO a bit sub-par.
