“With a major career change in my 40s that required a bachelor’s degree, EOU was instrumental in getting me prepared for my new profession in social services. I was hired as a Union County CARE Resource Coordinator to help create, build, and implement a new resource partnership for at-risk students and their families. EOU provided me with the skills I needed, not only in the realm of sociology and social welfare, but also with a well-rounded approach to collaborative communication, community building, and mindfulness toward individuals and situations. To me, the education I received through EOU was more than academic — it was the hands-on practicums, daily interactions with faculty and staff, and the challenge of finding my purpose within my community and world.”
