Proud Partners with the Chamber of Commerce

Eastern Oregon University is unveiling a new initiative that celebrates the connections between EOU and the diverse businesses and organizations in Union County!

The series kicks off by honoring the long-standing partnership between the university and the Union County Chamber of Commerce.

Urban/Rural Ambassadors Seminar

The Urban Rural Ambassador’s Seminar is an opportunity for students from Eastern Oregon University and Portland State University to work collaboratively over two weekend-long residential field trips in Portland and La Grande, as well as several online sessions with guest speakers and activities to complement the field outings.

Scholarships are available, and applications received before February 28 will be considered for funding that covers nearly 100% of this program!
