Oregon Senate Confirms New Student and Staff Trustee Representatives for Oregon Tech Governing Board

The Oregon Senate confirmed two new trustees for the governing board of Oregon Tech: Tim Hasty, a current student at Oregon Tech’s Klamath Falls campus; and Michele Vitali, Oregon Tech’s administrative lead at the Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center Research & Development (OMIC) in Scappoose.

Oregon Tech Board of Trustees approve $3.5 million in budget cuts and reallocations to meet impacts of COVID-19

Oregon Tech receives approximately 40 percent of its budget from the state; thus, the financial health of the university and the state are intricately linked. The state has estimated that it will take at least four years to get back to pre-COVID employment levels, and up to a decade of structural deficits.
