PORTLAND - The Oregon State Board of Higher Education will hear an update at its regular meeting this Friday, June 18, on the four-campus master of software engineering program, which concludes its first academic year this spring. The Higher Education Board is also slated to approve 15 new graduate-level certificate programs designed to enhance expertise among Oregonians in fast-changing careers.

Over 200 students enrolled this year in courses offered through the master of software engineering program. Participating institutions include three public campuses, Oregon State University, Portland State University, and the University of Oregon, and one private campus, the Oregon Graduate Institute. Portland State University is proposing the new graduate certificates.

Other items on the board's agenda Friday include proposed bachelor's degrees in social services at Southern Oregon University and dance at Western Oregon University; potential building acquisitions by Portland State and Southern Oregon Universities; administrative rule changes in accordance with the recent Tanner decision by the Oregon Court of Appeals; review of a draft fee schedule for the 1999-2000 academic year; and other administrative items.

The Board's Executive Committee will meet at 4 p.m., Thursday, in Room 309 of the Hoke University Center. All Friday meetings also will be held in the Hoke Center.
