Overall enrollment at Oregon public colleges, universities down this fall - Meerah Powell, Oregon Public Broadcasting

That’s not the case for every school. Oregon State reports record enrollment this fall.
Many of Oregon’s public colleges and universities are seeing fewer students this fall compared to last year, according to the state’s Higher Education Coordinating Commission. For some institutions, the decline in enrollment is a continuing trend only heightened by the pandemic. “If you combine all of our public institutions, community colleges and universities – and look at student headcount – fall enrollment is down 1.2% from last year,” said HECC executive director Ben Cannon at a board meeting Thursday.
