Full Resumption Plan
Looking toward fall term and a new academic year, EOU continues its commitment to the health and well-being of students and the continuation of their academic progress. EOU is committed to resume classes in-person and in flexible formats, and provide for a gradual and phased resumption of on-site university activities, in keeping with Oregon Health Authority and local health authorities’ guidelines.
EOU’s distance education students will continue to benefit from the breadth of online classes and degrees offered, with our Regional Outreach and Innovation team providing the stellar services our students have grown accustomed to receiving.

Planning for resuming activities is a complex endeavor. The overarching principle guiding our planning is to maintain the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, and our community.
