The Oregon Legislature entrusts the HECC with
research and analysis of higher education policy questions of interest to the
state. In many cases, the agency’s role is to convene partners to research and
evaluate a specific topic and report recommendations. In addition, the Commission
charges work groups, subcommittees, and task forces of its members to develop
recommendations on higher education topics relevant for its strategic plan and
state goals, and the agency develops additional reports for the public.
A selection of frequently cited reports developed
by work groups and/or committees of the Commission is listed here. This
list does not include legislative testimony, updates, and presentations given
to legislative committees on the items below; for all such testimony, see the Oregon Legislative Information System. For select materials, links, and summaries from each Legislative Session, see HECC Legislative Resources. For additional Commission
reports, see Past Meeting Materials.
