PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) _ University of Kansas Provost Richard Lariviere has been named the finalist to replace retiring University of Oregon President Dave Frohnmayer.

Oregon officials said today that Lariviere, who is also executive vice chancellor at Kansas, will visit the Oregon campus in Eugene on March 10 and 11.

The State Board of Higher Education will make its final decision after he completes the visit.

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.
