About Our Institution
Eastern Oregon University was founded in 1929 as a teacher’s college and today serves as a center for education, culture, and scholarship in rural areas of Oregon. At EOU students receive personal attention from their professors while building strong relationships with peers and mentors.
Officially designated Oregon’s Rural University, EOU cultivates innovative partnerships with communities across the region to expand economic and educational opportunities for all.
“Eastern Oregon University and the center in John Day have been an all-around amazing experience. I was such a lost soul before meeting my advisor, Chris Cronin. I had minimal educational credits and tons of life experience to present, but I needed a path. Being able to continue my job, being a mother and wife, and maintaining that connection with the distance center was just what I needed: whether it was a phone call to faculty, emailing back and forth, on-site courses, weekend learning or just lending an ear. Eastern Oregon University was the best fit for me. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend EOU as a learning institution and am forever grateful for this experience. It has been an honor to go to school here and I hope that distance education continues to grow and bless the lives of non-traditional students for many years to come!”
