Register By Noon, February 17
Two nationally-known experts in higher education will take the Salem City Club stage this Friday to discuss the dramatic changes coming to both private and public institutions in Oregon and throughout the United States. Both see colleges and universities re-thinking their positions given the current impact of technology, demographics, economics, funding and even the perceived value of education.
Larry Large, president of the Oregon Alliance of Independent Colleges and Universities (OAICU) and George Pernsteiner, national president of the State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO), will share their knowledge on higher education transformations happening now and in the near future; the necessity of the changes; how to accomplish them; and who will be impacted.
Large, who has served as OAICU president for the last five years, also is the owner of L.D. Large Consulting LLC in Lake Oswego. Before that, Large served as president, interim president and in other administrative positions at colleges and universities in Oregon, Nevada, and Georgia. He holds degrees from Portland State University, the University of Oregon and was named an honorary alumnus from Corpus Christi College, Oxford University, in 2004.
Pernsteiner became national president of SHEEO in 2013 after serving nine years as chancellor of the Oregon University system. He also served in leadership positions at Portland State University, the University of Oregon and the University of California, Santa Barbara after a career in local government in Seattle, Washington.  Pernsteiner holds degrees from Seattle University and the University of Washington and has taught at universities in both Washington and Oregon. 

This program is generously sponsored by the Chemeketa College Bookstore.
