UO trustees to zero in on the competitive Portland higher education marketplace

The University of Oregon’s Portland beachhead will be a focal point Wednesday when the Board of Trustees gathers from homes in Seattle, Denver, Portland and points in between for its quarterly meetings marathon.
Trustees will consider the UO Foundation’s proposed purchase of the White Stag building in Old Town, a plan to ship UO’s masters program in historic preservation to the Rose City — and trustees will consider a blueprint for future development at the Portland outpost during the three-day series of meetings.
The foundation proposes to spend $42.6 million on the 150,015 square foot White Stag complex. The UO would continue paying rent until the foundation’s mortgage was satisfied; then, the foundation would give the building to the university, according to board documents.
The UO School of Architecture and Allied Arts, meanwhile, is asking to relocate its 33-year-old historic preservation program to Portland beginning in fall 2016.
