UO publishes job description for new president

The Daily Emerald
January 23rd, 2015

If the University of Oregon had a Tinder account, its bio might read, “One of the nation’s premier research universities seeks innovative leader for president.” Since UO can’t just swipe right for the next president, the matching process is a little different.
The current presidential search is unique for the University of Oregon. In previous years, the university was a part of the Oregon University System, which used to pick the president. Governor Kitzhaber signed Senate Bill 270 in 2013 allowing Oregon universities to set up their own independent governing boards.
The UO Board of Trustees formed after SB 270 was signed into law and the board assumed responsibility for the university July 1, 2014. Among its many duties, the Board of Trustees is now responsible for the hiring of UO’s president.
