The purpose of the meeting is for CORAB to address questions raised by Chancellor's Office staff and consultants hired by the Oregon University System to evaluate CORAB's December 17, 2000, proposal to the State Board of Higher Education. The specific questions are (1) what is missing from the present structure; (2) what innovations, improvements, and changes would distinguish the proposed model from the present model; and (3) what needs to happen next?
