Postsecondary Finance and Capital

​Public University Capital Funding

The HECC Office of Postsecondary Finance and Capital coordinates the process for developing state budget recommendations for capital investments and state-funded debt for Oregon’s public universities.​

Oregon’s seven public universities play critical roles in developing Oregonians for their future opportunities and career success.  The funding proposal for capital projects is one essential way that the HECC Postsecondary Finance team partners with the colleges to contribute to that student success.
