The Office of Regional Outreach and Innovation (ROI)

The unit of Regional Outreach and Innovation (ROI) was established to support the online and onsite degree programs of Eastern Oregon University (EOU). ROI has 11 centers in the state of Oregon, with admissions, academic advising and support services available at each center. A number of the centers are hosted by valued community college partners, with transfer agreements and shared services, and in some cases co-admission and co-enrollment.

ROI has a dual-focus: to assist prospective online or onsite students interested in EOU; and to work with current online and onsite EOU students completing their degrees. EOU offers fully-accredited majors and minors, with a focus on flexibility, convenience and great value to students around the world. ROI adapts and connects the needs of business, industry and educational partners to enable academic programming in specific areas that link EOU online and onsite students to the real world.
