Fact Book 2002 Released by Oregon University System
PORTLAND, March 28
– Oregon University System today released its Fact Book 2002, a
compilation of current, past, and projected data on various components of the
state's public university system.
Published every two years, the Fact
Book contains the latest information on students, faculty, programs of study,
degrees awarded, budget and finances, and facilities of the Oregon University
System (OUS), both current and historical.
“With the face of higher
education changing rapidly across the nation, we believe this is a valuable
resource in research and analysis for Oregon, and for other state systems in the
west and nationally,” said Bob Kieran, director of institutional research for
OUS. “Besides being informative, the Fact Book helps to describe Oregon’s
commitment to developing and maintaining the body of knowledge necessary to
education our future generations,” added Kieran.
Highlights from the 2002 Fact Book include:
Richard Jarvis, chancellor of OUS,
said, “The accomplishments of our students, faculty, and
staff, and the robust growth seen in these data, demonstrate the
quality and effectiveness of Oregon’s public universities.
Across the state, our universities are integral community
partners that are positively affecting Oregon’s economy and
future growth and development in the state, “ added Jarvis. “Yet, the great unknown is how declining state
appropriations and the state’s budget crisis will directly
affect students and the System both in the short and long term.
We may see very different numbers than this in the next
biennium’s Fact Book.”
The 2002 Fact Book is
available electronically at www.ous.edu/irs/,
and is in a searchable format. For more information, contact
OUS’s Office of Institutional Research at 541-346-5739 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Oregon University System (OUS)
comprises seven distinguished public universities, reaching more
than one million people each year through on-campus classes,
statewide public services and lifelong learning. The Oregon
State Board of Higher Education, the statutory governing board
of OUS, is composed of eleven members appointed by the Governor
and confirmed by the Oregon State Senate. For additional
