Here is the latest on the Monday State Board of Higher Education Meeting via past Senate President Nathan Tublitz (for current Senate Pres Robert Kyr and the Senate Executive Committee). There are only two buses being rented. If people let the Senate know that we will need more transportation, then I'm sure that the funds can be raised to provide it. By the way, it looks like there won't be an opportunity for a stop in Salem on Monday. That will have to wait until later depending on how things roll during the rest of the week.
TIME: 2-5pm. The Board will meet in Executive Session at 2pm. The public part of the meeting will begin at approximately 3pm. Senate President Robert Kyr will speak shortly after the beginning of the public meeting.
LOCATION: OUS Boardroom, 1800 SW 6th Avenue, Suite 515, Portland State University campus, Academic and Student Recreation Center, Portland, OR, 97201
PRE-MEETING GATHERING: The Oregon Business Institute in Portland has generously offered the use of several rooms for us to gather prior to the meeting.
OBI is in the 200 Market Street building. That is between 2nd and 3rd Avenues on Market Street. It is roughly 3 blocks from the OUS Boardroom.
By bus: The UO Alumni Association has generously offered to provide two buses for this event. Buses will leave at 12:15 pm Monday from the front of the Ford Alumni Center.
By car: OBI has a parking garage under their building which they have offered for our use. The garage is located on Market Street immediately after passing by 3rd Avenue You will need to pull a ticket and go up to the OBI office to obtain free validation stickers.
Carpooling: Please send a message to N. Tublitz at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need a ride or have available space in your vehicle.
