Oregon lawmakers will consider a proposal to remove the University of Oregon from the State University System.   University of Oregon President Richard Lariviere is driving the proposals to sever his school's ties with the Oregon University System to increase local autonomy, improve fundraising opportunities and use bonds to back the school during the transition. “These bills should not be the ceiling on our efforts in Oregon, but the floor by which we begin to drive meaningful reform throughout the entire university system.” Students say a new Board of Directors wouldn't include enough student representation; and others are worried the smaller state universities would be left in the dust by the plan.
