IS OREGON ON A TREND TOWARDS PRIVATIZATION?

$ In 1992 Oregon converted the Oregon Health Sciences University into a state assisted public corporation.

$ Last year, the state considered privatizing the Oregon Institute of Technology.

$ Nearly half of the nation's colleges contract out five or more campus services.

$ Edventure Partners gave $2500 to SOU marketing students to promote Town and Country Chevrolet.

$ Southern Oregon University accepts private contributions from several corporations including Boise and Bear Creek.

$$$ "I think it behooves us to be willing to consider all options. That includes the option of exploring privatization of one or more campuses is in the best interests of Oregonians." Joseph Cox, Oregon University System Chancellor. $$$
