The Eastern Oregon University Colloquium has continuously operated as a venue to share academic research and pedagogy for over thirty years. It began its existence as the Division of Science Colloquia within the School of Arts and Sciences, and it now includes the entire university.
Colloquium presenters have come from almost every part of the Eastern community and have included distinguished guests from other universities. The Colloquium is dedicated to making academic work accessible for colleagues in other disciplines, undergraduate students, and members of the larger community.
This year the Colloquium continues under the co-leadership of Dr. Heidi Harris, Assistant Professor of English/Writing and Dr. John Knudson-Martin, Associate Professor of Education.
Additional information regarding the individual colloquium presentations will be available by clicking on the title of each presentation listed below (as each is scheduled). We wish to thank the staff of Pierce Library for providing additional resource information regarding faculty research via their website (http://library.eou.edu/colloquium).
