The board will be asked to approve a fiscal year 2018 expenditure authorization, which will solidify the new fiscal year budget now that state appropriations are known. In addition, trustees will receive reports from the Office of Internal Audit and the regular quarterly financial report, as well as an overview of a significant piece of the auxiliary budget, university housing.
University housing will also be a part of a pair of other discussions, as trustees learn more about the university’s new live-on requirement for first-year students and consider the name Kalapuya Ilihi Hall as the name of a newly opened residence hall. Ilihi (ILL‐I‐hi) means “homeland” in Chinuk wawa, a common language of the region in the 19th century. Thus, Kalapuya Ilihi means Kalapuya homeland.
In other work, the board will:
- Hear an update on phase one of the Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact capital project.
- Authorize the sale of bonds for the renovation of Bean Hall.
- Learn about the new UO reporting policy on sexual violence.
- Receive an update on changes within fraternity and sorority life.
