This has been a tumultuous year at Southern Oregon University; deep budget cuts, faculty layoffs, contentious contract negotiations, academic reorganization -- not to mention a dramatic restructuring of the entire Oregon University System.

On Monday, SOU president Mary Cullinan announced she’s a finalist for a position as president of Youngstown State University in Ohio.

JPR’s Liam Moriarty spoke with Cullinan in her office on the SOU campus about what the potential move means, for her and for the university.
