ASTORIA, Ore. – In a meeting last week, Lawrence Galizio, president of Clatsop Community College, and Donald Easton-Brooks, dean of Business and Education at EOU, signed an agreement that will increase educational opportunities for students in the Astoria area.
The new cooperative program enables undergraduates to earn an associate of science-Oregon transfer (ASOT) degree from Clatsop and a bachelor of business administration degree from EOU while remaining on the CCC campus.
Beginning fall 2014 and following completion of their ASOT degree, participating students will be able to transfer 120 credits from CCC into the EOU bachelor’s degree program. Students will continue in upper division classes offered by EOU on the CCC campus on Fridays and Saturdays.
“We look forward to building a strong relationship with Clatsop Community College and Astoria area businesses,” Easton-Brooks said. “We believe that this partnership will allow us to provide students an opportunity to gain practical knowledge, while continuing to service their hometown business community.”
Clatsop’s administration also views the program as an enormous benefit to students who are unable to leave the local area, and hopes it will serve as the catalyst for other partnerships and programs with baccalaureate degree-granting institutions to further expand local educational offerings.
The signing ceremony took place Wednesday, May 21 in Columbia Hall at CCC. About 40 people attended, including Rep. Deborah Boone and Skip Hauke, executive director of the Astoria Warrenton Chamber of Commerce, CCC faculty, staff and students, and members of the community.
Additional EOU representatives included Laurie Yates, business faculty member, and Tim Weatherly, program advisor who maintains an office on CCC’s main campus.
Representing CCC were Donna Larson, vice president of Academic and Student Affairs, Kristen Wilkin, dean of Workforce and Community Education, Tommie Redwine, business faculty and members of the CCC Business Advisory Committee.
Space in the program is limited. For additional information contact Weatherly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-440-3052.
