UO Trustees schedule their fall meeting for a football game weekend with no students or faculty, while OSU Trustees do their due diligence

The OSU Board of Trustees finance committee is meeting in two weeks to prepare for their full set of Board meetings Oct 18-20 – when their students are actually on campus. You can find all their public meetings notices, agendas, and minutes from their many substantive meetings (10 so far this year) here: http://leadership.oregonstate.edu/trustees/public-meeting-notices

Meanwhile the UO Board of Trustees and its committees typically meet only 4 times a year (maybe one or two extra for the audit committee to approve coaches contracts). Committee meetings are often only 30 minutes.  Their next meeting is scheduled Sept 7-8. UO faculty aren’t on contract until Sept 15, and classes don’t start until Sept 25th, but that’s not important compared to the big home game against Nebraska, conveniently scheduled for 1:30PM on the 9th. And people wonder what our Board’s priorities are? Go Ducks!

In contrast, the OSU Trustees are willing to show up in Corvallis when they can meet with faculty and students, without a football game to distract them.
