2/1/2012: OUS Board Chair Matt Donegan is still cut up from the Portland fight, and for all his bravado he apparently hasn’t shown his face in Eugene since the meeting where he and Allyn Ford told Lariviere the board had decided to fire him. So Donegan has sent us a washed-up lightweight to take his punches for him. This should be fascinating:
This Friday, February 3rd, the City Club of Eugene will host a debate on the future of higher education governance in Oregon, with Chancellor George Pernsteiner and Acting UO President Robert Berdahl. At the Eugene Hilton at 11:45.
Following the presentations, there will be an opportunity for questions from the audience. Robert Kyr, president of the UO Faculty Senate, will ask one of the first questions. Andrew Rogers, ASUO Communications Director, will ask the other.
This will also be broadcast on KLCC on Monday evening, Feb 6.
The Eugene City Club hosts many interesting talks and is a strong part of Eugene’s civic life. They want more UO faculty members, so do what you can to make this event.
The smart money is on Berdahl – but then the smart money was on Lariviere. Pernsteiner’s a sneaky bastard, with lots of student tuition money and state perks to dole out to his entourage of suck-ups.
