Over the last week the University of Oregon has released numerous updates, both on precautions it is putting in place and forward looking measures dealing with finances. Many things still remain up in the air and some are in negotiations.
On Thursday of last week the university’s provost provided a working proposal that would provide wage cuts to many of its workers. The full proposal can be viewed here. The basics of the plan is that there are a set of triggers for pay cuts based on if there is loss of revenue from the state or dip in enrollment. Bill Harbaugh has a good breakdown and includes United Academics’ full response.
In other University of Oregon news, the provost announced that all summer classes will be remotely.
