PORTLAND — Gov. John Kitzhaber released his $242 million priority list for higher education construction projects Tuesday, and Oregon State University would stand to benefit most if lawmakers agree with his recommendations.
The governor said the list developed with college and university officials will help ensure there is sufficient capacity to meet the state's 40-40-20 goal by 2025. The goal is for 40 percent of adult Oregonians to hold a bachelor's or advanced degree, 40 percent to have an associate's degree or postsecondary certificate, and everyone else to have at least graduated high school.
