The state sets new guidelines for the University of Oregon's President. Members of the State Board of Higher Education are not happy that Ducks President Richard Lariviere went directly to state legislators to push for a new funding plan for the University. His new one year contract states he must get board approval for such a plan. The Board also has the power to fire him without cause with just 30 days notice. He must also attend more board meetings. Board President Paul Kelly says the U of O is not a stand alone institution and must play by the rules like every one else.
