Oregon Statutes - Chapter 351 - Higher Education Generally - Section 351.200 - Board power over higher education curricula and departments.

(1) The State Board of Higher Education shall visit all state institutions of higher education under its jurisdiction for the purpose of inquiring as to the work offered and conducted at such institutions, whenever and as often as it may deem necessary. The board shall specifically determine from time to time as occasion may require what courses or departments, if any, shall not, in its judgment, be duplicated in the several higher educational institutions. The board may direct the elimination of duplicate work from any institution, and determine and define the courses of study and departments to be offered and conducted by each institution.

(2) A record of such determination shall be kept by the board. The board shall notify the Governor of such determination and each institution affected shall conform thereto.

(3) If any changes are made in the curricula of any institution, the change shall become effective at the beginning of the school year following the determination.
