CORAB to Discuss Branch Campus Proposals
BEND - The Central Oregon Regional Advisory Board (CORAB) will meet Thursday, Dec. 14 to discuss the two campus proposals for establishing the state's first branch university campus in Central Oregon.
Thursday's CORAB meeting will be held from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. in the Max Merrill Conference Room on the campus of Central Oregon Community College, 2600 NW College Way, Bend. The meeting is open to the public.
Oregon State University, Corvallis, and the University of Oregon, Eugene, have submitted plans to operate and manage the proposed branch campus. Both proposals are now being reviewed by the Oregon University System. A recommendation on the proposals is expected before the State Board of Higher Education in February.
