The Oregon Office of University Coordination is the agency designated by the Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC), established in 2013 under ORS § 352.002,[1] to provide academic and fiscal coordination for seven public universities in Oregon.[2] Beginning 2015–2016, the Office of University Coordination was authorized to process academic program approval through the HECC, make budget recommendations for public universities in Oregon, and allocate funds using a model for student success and completion.[2] Effective July 1, 2014, three universities (University of Oregon, Oregon State University, and Portland State University) broke away from the Oregon University System.[3] Effective July 1, 2015, the remaining four universities (Eastern Oregon University, Oregon Institute of Technology, Southern Oregon University and Western Oregon University) also became independent.[4]
