Students, alumni, faculty and staff from all seven Oregon public universities will gather to advocate for higher education funding at the Oregon Capitol in Salem on Thursday, Feb. 15.
Advocates, including UO President Michael Schill and ASUO President Amy Schenk, will thank legislators for increased funding in 2017. They also will urge lawmakers to protect universities from cuts in 2018 that may endanger programs and services that students rely on to graduate and be prepared for the 21st century workplace.
