Doing the business of the UO

Today the Board of the Trustees of the University of Oregon convened on campus. It has been interesting watching this board form, organize and begin to govern. This is a group of dedicated individuals (many alumni of the UO) who are taking on the heavy lifting of governing a school that has, for a very long time, been governed by a fairly hands-off statewide board. This new group is hands-on and is taking time to meet faculty, students, staff and alumni in order to better understand the UO. As they come to understand the UO, they will have first-hand information with which they can govern the UO. They can help the UO become even greater. Thank you for your service. You make me proud to be a Duck.
