The Statutory Faculty Assembly exercises the authority granted to it in 1872, when the Oregon Legislature first decreed that the “president and professors constitute the faculty” of UO “and as such have the immediate government and discipline” of the University. (Now Oregon Revised Statutes 352.010.)
