At-large positions on the governing board are volunteer posts with nominees selected by the governor. The governor will submit her choice to the Oregon Senate, which in turn votes on whether to confirm nominees.
Those interested in applying should contact University Secretary Angela Wilhelms, who can provide more detail on executive appointment processes and deadlines. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-346-5561.
Perhaps Governor Brown will use this opportunity to appoint someone to the Board who knows something about higher education.
