Richard Bailey takes the helm at Southern Oregon University

 Richard Bailey - SOU President
Richard Bailey - SOU President

The president took his job in mid-January. Well, yes, THAT president, too, but in this case we mean the new president of Southern Oregon University.

Richard J. Bailey is now ensconced on the SOU campus in Ashland, after arriving from his old job at Northern New Mexico College. There were challenges to be met there, and more of the same at SOU, buffeted by the pandemic and by an ongoing decline in enrollment.

President Bailey visits to outline his vision for the future of SOU, and the day-to-day steps to get there.
