Oregon Health & Science University is $23 million over budget, and may have to raise tuition and admit less Oregon students in order to stay afloat.

Scarce resources were a recurring theme at Tuesday’s meeting, though the first presentation on the school’s financials, painted a relatively bright picture. Chief Financial Officer Lawrence Furnstahl – who the board voted to appoint to OHSU’s Integrity Program Oversight Council after his presentation – said the school is over budget in terms of operating income, of which it has $23 million.
