George Pernsteiner,  chancellor of the Oregon University System, is expected to recommend today that Robert Berdahl, a veteran university administrator, be named interim president at the University of Oregon to replace ousted President Richard Lariviere.

The State Board of Higher Education will meet at 4 p.m. Friday at Portland State University to vote on the recommendation.

Berdahl was traveling out of state Thursday and was not immediately available for comment. While the chancellor's office would not confirm that Berdahl is Pernsteiner's choice, several sources said Berdahl will be the only name recommended to the board to replace Lariviere, who must leave by Dec. 28.
