Senator Bates and Representative Buckley will be recognized at an awards ceremony at Southern Oregon University on April 30

(Ashland, OR.) – Senator Alan C. Bates and Representative Peter J. Buckley have been selected to receive the 2014 Southern Oregon University President’s Medal.

“It is truly an honor to receive the President’s Medal,” said Senator Alan Bates. “Southern Oregon University is an important entity in the complex and delicate fabric that represents both the past and future of southern Oregon. I am humbled to be recognized in this manner.  It’s a pleasure to work alongside those who strive for a bright and successful future for SOU.”

The Southern Oregon University President’s Medal is awarded each year to a member of the community. “This is the highest service award presented by SOU,” said SOU President Dr. Mary Cullinan. “The President’s Medal recognizes individuals who have served the University, the region, and the greater community in an exemplary manner. It represents qualities such as compassion, integrity, and service. Receiving the medal is a true honor.”

“While I appreciate the acknowledgement of our work, Senator Bates and I both know there is still a long way to go to turn around Oregon’s investment in higher education,” said Representative Peter Buckley. “We’re committed to doing everything we can to help SOU thrive.”

Senator Bates and Representative Buckley will be recognized at an awards ceremony at Southern Oregon University on April 30.

Sustainable building practices were employed throughout the design and construction of the Raider Village residence and dining complex. 

Southern Oregon University (SOU) announced today that it has been awarded LEED® Gold for the new Raider Village residence and dining complex. The LEED rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the foremost program for buildings, homes and communities that are designed, constructed, maintained and operated for improved environmental and human health performance.

“SOU is pleased to receive LEED Gold Certification for the new Raider Village,” says Drew Gilliland, SOU Director of Facilities Management & Planning. “This is the campus’ largest project to date. We are proud to have surpassed our goal of LEED Silver Certification for all new construction and look forward to continuing to meet and exceed this goal with future projects.”

The Raider Village is the newest development in sustainable campus living and a unique experience that has no equal in the Oregon University System. The Village includes 195,000 sf of new student housing, 24,000 sf of dining opportunities and over 6.8 acres of renovated landscaping, parking and pedestrian paths. Raider Village is an interactive learning community of environmental stewardship and inspiration.

SOU achieved LEED certification for implementing practical and measurable strategies and solutions aimed at achieving high performance in: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. “SOU’s Raider Village LEED certification demonstrates tremendous green building leadership,” said Rick Fedrizzi, president, CEO and founding chair, USGBC. “The urgency of USGBC’s mission has challenged the industry to move faster and reach further than ever before, and SOU serves as a prime example with just how much we can accomplish.”

Sustainable building practices were employed throughout the design and construction of the Raider Village residence and dining complex. The project sourced 26% of materials within 500 miles and diverted a staggering 86% of construction waste from the landfill. Students enjoy daylit common spaces, thermostat controls for each unit, and bicycle storage in each room. The site also features six electric vehicle charging stations, improved pedestrian crossings to enhance walkability, and 160 covered bicycle stalls throughout Raider Village.

Additional sustainable building strategies featured in Raider Village include:

  • 11.2% on-site renewable energy generation for all new buildings including solar water heating and photovoltaic electricity generation;
  • 45% water reduction beyond building code with water conserving plumbing fixtures;
  • Lighting sensors and advanced controls to reduce energy use in vacant spaces;
  • Non-potable water used for landscaping;
  • Reduced on-site parking;
  • LoVOC or NoVOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) materials and furnishings used inside buildings and during construction.

PRESS RELEASE

Liz Shelby, shelby@sou.edu, 541-552-6733

April 4, 2014

Today, the Oregon State Board of Higher Education Board voted to endorse with conditions an institutional board for Southern Oregon University.  Per House Bill 4018, which the Oregon Legislature passed in February and the Governor signed earlier this week, negotiations on the conditions will begin between the President and the OSBHE, and recommended to the Governor within the next 45 days.  Over the next 15 months, SOU will transition to the new governance model.  The Board of Trustees will officially assume governance on July 1, 2015.

Rep. Peter Buckley, who attended today’s Board meeting in Portland, stated, “This is an extremely important change for SOU. For so many years, the university has been governed by people from outside our region who have meant well, but in my view, have never fully understood the needs or the great potential of our university. We will now have the chance to have top local leaders in education, business and our communities help guide SOU and the vital role it plays in our region.”

SOU has received support for an institutional board of trustees from our faculty, our students, our business and community leaders, and our legislative delegation in southern Oregon. All have expressed great interest in working with SOU’s institutional board members to help achieve the state’s 40-40-20 educational goals. Supporters also see the significant value that an institutional board will bring to the region by promoting even stronger ties between university curricular planning, workforce needs, and private contributions.  This will also increase professional career options for SOU graduates while helping to keep them employed in southern Oregon.

President Mary Cullinan who was also at the Board meeting this morning, stated, “With our powerful connections to our region and our distinctive programming and mission, Southern Oregon University welcomes the opportunity to assume the responsibilities of its own governing board while continuing powerful collaboration with our partners in Oregon and around the country.”

SOU final retrenchment plan balances program cuts with reinvestment in students

Plan reinvests in growth and cuts low enrollment, low demand programs to meet budget targets

Ashland, OR – March 14, 2014: Southern Oregon University released today the final retrenchment plan for the university. The plan eliminates a number of academic programs to ensure the long-term fiscal strength of the institution. Programs targeted for cuts have low enrollment, attracting few students and producing very few graduates, or are not currently meeting the needs of the regional workforce.

SOU president Mary Cullinan said, “I am very proud of our campus for pulling together as a community to solve our budget issues. This is a solid, realistic plan. It will enable SOU to focus resources in areas that are in demand and are core to our mission and student success.”

This final retrenchment plan lays out a process to achieve SOU’s overall goal of financial sustainability: a 5% fund balance, or reserve, by the end of the 2013-15 biennium, and a 10% fund balance by the end of the 2015-17 biennium. The plan calls for $6.2 million in permanent savings and $7.8 million in one-time savings.

“The hardest part of this process is seeing a number of our talented faculty leave SOU,” said Cullinan. “Because the retrenchment plan is phased in over a few years, faculty will get at least a year’s notice so they have time to plan for their next opportunity. Nonetheless, they will be a loss to our university.”

Implementation of the plan eventually reduces permanent faculty lines by 13 FTE, and increases over time the overall student/faculty ratio from 17:1 to 21:1. The retrenchment plan specifically focuses on reductions in academic programs. It does not impact financial aid, student life, or other areas of the university.

Majors and minors considered for reduction or elimination will continue to offer courses in the discipline. The programs being phased out graduate fewer than 10 students a year. Majors being eliminated include Art History and French. The current Physics major will be suspended, and SOU will review establishing a new, more contemporary Physics program that aligns with current workforce demand.  Photography, Professional Writing, and Film Techniques are among the minors that will be eliminated.

Current SOU students need to declare by April 1st to be included in the teach-out process.  Students with questions about affected programs should contact the Provost’s Office at provostsoffice@sou.edu or at 541-552- 6114. “We’re committed to all our students being able to complete their degrees if they are in affected programs,” added Cullinan.

A recent appropriation of $500,000 by the legislature to SOU will be used to make strategic investments in student success during the retrenchment process.

Dr. Cullinan said, “I look forward to beginning a strong strategic planning process that will move us forward. We need to reinvest in our strengths and in our students. They’re the foundation of this outstanding university.”

2014 Legislature Approves Important Measures for SOU Capital, Operations, and Governance

March 12, 2014

With the help of our southern Oregon delegation, Southern Oregon University achieved our legislative objectives during the 2014 legislative session that started in early February and ended on March 7, 2014.  SOU had visible advocacy throughout the session, including Salem visits from President Mary Cullinan, VP Craig Morris, Government Relations Director Liz Shelby, and SOU students who were in the Capitol every day of the session.

Outcomes for SOU from the 2014  Legislative Session include approval of the following measures:

Capital Budget

Senate Bill 5702 and Senate Bill 5703 amend the limits established during the 2013 legislative session on the maximum amount of bonds and/or third party agreements that state agencies may issue.

In connection with this budget action, SOU received $21.3M in XI-Q Bonds for the McNeal Hall Seismic/Deferred Maintenance Upgrade.  Our project was among those on the OUS top three life-safety priority list for this session.  The total approved for OUS capital projects was $29,351,100.

Operating Budget

HB 5201 is a budget reconciliation bill that modifies the state budget for the 2013-15 biennium. The measure adds $2 million General Fund to OUS for SEIU compensation agreements ($850K for PSU and $1.15M for the four technical and regional universities).

The bill also redirects $3.5 million of the Chancellor’s Office General Fund operating budget, into a special purpose appropriation that a subsequent Emergency Board will allocate for higher education governance cost changes. Of this budget, $500,000 is re-directed to EOU and another $500,000 to SOU as one-time financial assistance to be used for strategic reinvestment in student success during a period of budget cutting actions.

University Governance

HB 4018, which changes the date by which Eastern Oregon University, Oregon Institute of Technology, Southern Oregon University or Western Oregon University may request institutional governing board to May 15, 2014, and changes process of board formation, passed unanimously in both the House and the Senate on March 7, 2014.

Essentially the bill provides the State Board of Higher Education (SBHE) with more options when deciding whether to endorse or not endorse a university’s request to have a governing board. With HB4018, the SBHE can now endorse a university to have a governing board, with some conditions, which will be mutually agreed upon, in addition to the two previous options of not endorsing a request for a board or endorsing a request for a board unconditionally.

Representative Peter Buckley, Senator Alan Bates, and Senator Michael Dembrow had significant roles as negotiators of eight rounds of amendments that helped produce a consensus bill.

 

SOU Receives STARS Silver Rating for Sustainability Achievements

SOU Receives STARS Silver Rating for Sustainability Achievements

Ashland, OR – Southern Oregon University has received a STARS Silver Rating in recognition of their sustainability achievements from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE). STARS, the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System, is a program that measures and encourages sustainability in all aspects of higher education.

Since achieving a STARS Bronze Rating in 2011, SOU continues to expand and diversify campus sustainability initiatives. The university is highlighted annually by the Princeton Review and Sierra Magazine as one of the nation’s top green schools. In 2012, SOU was featured in the Department of Energy’s “Clean Energy in our Community” video series for its commitment to clean, renewable energy.

“SOU is honored to be recognized with a STARS Silver rating for our work to advance sustainability on campus and throughout our community,” says Southern Oregon University President, Mary Cullinan. “As one of SOU’s core values, sustainability is embraced by the entire campus. We pride ourselves on the collaborative partnerships and innovative solutions that have made SOU a leader in sustainability.”

AASHE’s STARS program is the only one of its kind that involves publicly reporting comprehensive information related to a college or university’s sustainability performance. Participants report achievements in three overall areas: 1) education & research, 2) operations, and 3) planning, administration & engagement.

“STARS was developed by the campus sustainability community to provide high standards for recognizing campus sustainability efforts,” said AASHE Executive Director Stephanie Herrera. “SOU has demonstrated a substantial commitment to sustainability by achieving a STARS Silver Rating and is to be congratulated for their efforts.”

Unlike other rating or ranking systems, this program is open to all institutions of higher education in the U.S. and Canada, and the criteria that determine a STARS Rating are transparent and accessible to anyone. Because STARS is a program based on credits earned, it allows for both internal comparisons as well as comparisons with similar institutions.

“From installing solar panels to establishing sustainable learning communities to fostering a diverse and inclusive campus culture, sustainability is embedded in everything we do at SOU. We are proud to have students, staff, faculty and administration working together to shape a bright and sustainable future,” says Roxane Beigel-Coryell, Sustainability & Recycling Coordinator. “We are thrilled to have achieved a STARS Silver Rating for our sustainability accomplishments and look forward to watching our sustainability efforts grow and improve through the STARS program.”

SOU Releases Draft Plan for Academic Program Cuts

NEWS RELEASE

Liz Shelby shelby@sou.edu 541.552.6111

Faculty, campus community will review plan during a 20 University-day comment period

Ashland, OR – February 6, 2014: Southern Oregon University has released a provisional (draft) plan that would eliminate a number of low-enrolled academic programs in order to cut costs. The provisional plan was preceded by three years of campus-wide work to keep costs as low as possible for students in the face of significant disinvestment by the state of Oregon.

Late last year the campus announced plans for “retrenchment,” a word used in the SOU faculty union contract when academic programs are eliminated or restructured.

The plan lays out three scenarios, from best to worst case, with a reduction range from between $3.3 million and $5 million depending on variables such as level of state funding and enrollment that are unknown at this time. The plan also includes a fourth scenario with programs that could be considered for elimination only if a very worst situation emerged, requiring $7 million in reductions. The State Board of Higher Education required that such an extreme scenario be included in the plan. “However, if the very worst scenario occurred,” says SOU President Mary Cullinan, “we would not compromise the mission of SOU with such draconian cuts only in academic areas. We would have broad conversations across campus before we would cut that deeply into academics.”

Funding for Oregon’s public universities remains far behind the levels seen in the past. In 1999, for example, SOU received a state allocation $13 million higher than in 2013 despite an increase of nearly a thousand students since then. Extensive planning initiatives used to determine cost reductions have included sophisticated data gathering, analysis of national models, implementation of best practices in the curriculum, data-driven decision-making, and reorganization of key areas and offices. Faculty, staff, students, and members of the external community have provided feedback on these initiatives.

In order to have the least impact on students as possible, proposed cuts focus on programs with low enrollment and low numbers of graduates.

Cullinan stressed that “All students who are in declared majors by March 15, 2014, will be able to complete their SOU degrees.”

From the day the provisional retrenchment plan is released, according to the faculty union contract, the campus has a 20 University-day period in which to comment on the cuts. The provisional plan will be discussed widely by constituencies on and off campus. Then the final plan will be published. Implementation will occur over three years.

“Just as we’ve seen with many organizations, long-term successful enterprises recalibrate when they need to,” said Cullinan. “We have a great institution here that means a lot to our region and to the state. We’re meeting our challenges head on, for our students now and in the future.”

“I’m grateful for the collaborative campus process that enabled us to develop a strong financial plan for SOU,” said Cullinan. “While this is a necessary action, it is not an easy one. We will lose some of our valued faculty colleagues, each of whom has been an important part of SOU.”
