Letter from the Dean
Eastern Oregon University and especially the Colleges of Business and Education are dedicated to meeting the University’s commitment of serving rural eastern Oregon and beyond through professional programs that include high quality instruction, practical research, and meaningful service.
The Colleges of Business and Education (COBE) offer exciting programs in the fields of Business Administration, Education, Physical Activity and Health, and Fire and Emergency Services. The Colleges’ faculty includes nationally and internationally recognized experts in their fields. They are committed to ensuring student learning and success. Each faculty member provides students opportunities to master contemporary theories and content; and participate in practical field experiences that enrich their lives and those they serve through these experiences.
As the “University that Works With You”, our colleges offer both undergraduate and graduate programs at our main campus in La Grande, online from anywhere in the world, and onsite at our regional centers at Blue Mountain Community College (Pendleton and Hermiston), Mt. Hood Community College (Gresham) and Treasure Valley Community College (Ontario).
As Dean, and speaking for the faculty and staff as well, we are proud of the programs within our college. We have exceptional students who, when they leave our university, are highly sought after to fill business and teaching positions, graduate school programs, and other career settings.
Dr. Danny R. Mielke
Interim Dean, Colleges of Business and Education
