Eastern Oregon University


Eastern Oregon University (EOU) was founded as a teacher's college and today serves as a centre for education, culture, and scholarship in Oregon's rural areas. At EOU, students receive personal attention from their professors while building strong relationships with peers and mentors.

Eastern Oregon University serves our students, our nation, and our world by being a place where the higher levels of learning are practised and lived daily. Education is a process of changing oneself, an enterprise fraught with conflict between old values and new, old ideas, and new. Students come to a university to be challenged and to become, through that process, larger, more capable, and wiser. Eastern Oregon University is committed to being a place where learning, inquiry, examination, debate, and reasoning are modelled, practised, and learned – skills that our graduates will incorporate into their sense of themselves and build on and develop throughout the rest of their lives.

Eastern Oregon University guides student inquiry through integrated, high-quality liberal arts and professional programs that lead to responsible and reflective action in a diverse and interconnected world.

As an educational, cultural, and scholarly centre, Eastern Oregon University connects Oregon's rural regions to a wider world. Our beautiful setting and small size enhance the personal attention our students receive. At the same time, partnerships with colleges, universities, agencies, and communities add to our region and state's educational possibilities.

Academic programs at Eastern Oregon University offer the opportunity to learn in a small classroom setting in beautiful rural Oregon. Students can choose from more than 30 academic programs with four colleges, including sciences, humanities, teaching, and business! Eastern Oregon University has small class sizes with dedicated faculty, whose focus is on student success.
