Oregon University System Chancellor George Pernsteiner said Lariviere will take over for Frohnmayer at a time of ``intense challenges'' facing higher education and the economy.
If confirmed after his visit, Lariviere will begin July 1. Frohnmayer has served as University of Oregon president for fifteen years.
