Oregon Metals Initiative
Dramatic changes at OEDD have eliminated this source of matching funds. Because of this funding shortfall totaling $350,000, staff requests authorization to go before the Emergency Board to solicit the remainder of matching funds for this project.

Academic Affairs
Program Reinstatement: Master of Accounting, UO

The original Master of Accounting at the UO was established to allow graduate business students to specialize in accounting. The impetus for the reinstatement request is recent state legislation, effective in 2000, requiring five years of university-level education before taking the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) examination.

REPORT ITEMS
