“We achieve three things under the New Partnership:

1. We free our universities from a centralized state bureaucracy and provide greater autonomy for our management and operations;

2. We strengthen public accountability and involvement by establishing a dedicated governing board for the University of Oregon and other universities that want them; and

3. We prevent further budget cuts and the tuition increases they create by establishing public-private endowment authority for any university wishing to pursue it. ”
