University of Oregon President Michael Gottfredson resigned Wednesday after two years on the job.
A seasoned university administrator in his first presidency, Gottfredson led the university as it negotiated its first contract with its new faculty union, prepared for a $1 billion-plus fundraising campaign that never formally launched, and was ensnared in scandal over its handling of sexual assault allegations against three basketball players.
He was one of the key players who helped persuade the Oregon Legislature to give UO and other Oregon universities the right to form their own governing boards, free from the Oregon Board of Higher Education.
