Fourteen people with ties to the University of Oregon – alumni, friends, faculty and staff members, and a student – were appointed by Governor John Kitzhaber today to serve on the university's inaugural board of trustees.
“I could not be more pleased with the governor’s appointments to the University of Oregon’s new board of trustees,” said UO President Michael Gottfredson. “I am deeply appreciative of the thoughtfulness and confidence demonstrated in his choices, and of the commitment this distinguished group of individuals is making to the future of our university. We will all benefit from their talents, insight and expertise as we work together to enhance and improve how we deliver on the promise of our public mission.”
Senate confirmation of the governor’s appointments is scheduled for next month.
