EOU among best in the nation
Jan. 10, 2018 La Grande, Ore. — U.S. News and World Report ranked Eastern Oregon University among its top 100 institutions for online bachelor’s degrees in 2018. EOU jumped more than 10 spots to join the nation’s best colleges and universities on the prestigious list.
The magazine’s annual ranking of higher education is carefully assembled through close analysis of key data points. Publishers reviewed each school’s policies and practices regarding student engagement, student services and technology, and faculty credentials and training. They also collected surveys from peer institutions to evaluation institutional reputations.
The news comes as EOU prepares to bolster online and on campus enrollment through innovative technology and leading educational strategies. Executive Director of Regional Outreach and Innovation David Vande Pol has made significant strides to expand EOU’s offerings since joining the university six months ago.
“EOU has long been a pioneer in online education,” Vande Pol said. “We are pleased that U.S. News and World Report is recognizing the quality of our online programs as we continue to expand our offerings to students who need the flexibility and equity of access that online education provides.”
