Chancellor's Office & OSBHE Transition

Transition of the Chancellor’s Office

The assets and authorities within the Chancellor's Office that facilitate student success and system efficiency will transition to a few different entities on July 1, 2014. Some functions will transition to the Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC), a new Shared Services organization, the campuses, and perhaps other entities. More information on the reform and transitions within higher education will be forthcoming over the next 12-18 months from the Governor's Office and the Legislature as working groups on university shared services as well as Board and Legislative committees on university governance complete their work; and the short February 2014 and regular 2015 Legislative Sessions produce additional legislation. For those who wish to follow the progress of this work, links to these committees and work groups are below:

Transition of the State Board of Higher Education

Pending any changes by the Legislature, on July 1, 2014 the State Board of Higher Education will transition to a governing board of the four technical/regional universities and the three larger universities will be governed by their own institutional boards. The Board will be in place until July 1, 2015, after which the technical and regional universities will move to a new governance structure (see above).
