Education Principles

Education of the Whole Person

EOU encourages students to develop through a variety of experiences, including academics, co-curricular activities, and the four cornerstones of research, community service, internships or mentoring, and international or inter-cultural experiences.

Preparation for the Changing World of Work

EOU’s programs in business, education and the liberal arts, and its partnerships in fields such as the agricultural sciences and nursing, allow students to gain the knowledge and skills needed to succeed as ethical professionals in a global economy.

The Value of Diversity

EOU helps its students, faculty, and staff, live and work as problem solvers committed to social justice and to creating communities that value equally the contributions of people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, classes and cultures.






Liberal Arts for Lifelong Learning

Through the rich legacy of the liberal arts, EOU challenges students to become critical, creative thinkers and engaged, knowledgeable citizens, open to new ways of looking at, and living within, the world.

Teacher Education for a New Time

EOU continues its founding heritage by preparing teachers who are academically competent, socially and culturally sensitive, personally capable and professionally accomplished, in order to facilitate learning in 21st century schools.

Access to Quality

EOU’s commitment to quality extends beyond its campus. As an innovative leader in online education, EOU helps students throughout Oregon and beyond enhance their lives through education.

A Climate of Support

EOU supports students in their learning and supports its faculty and staff in their collective work of educating students and contributing to the cultural and scholarly heritage of our region and world.


University Mission

EOU guides student inquiry through integrated, high quality liberal arts and professional programs that lead to responsible and reflective action in a diverse and interconnected world. As an educational, cultural and scholarly center, EOU connects the rural regions of Oregon to a wider world. Our beautiful setting and small size enhance the personal attention our students receive, while partnerships with colleges, universities, agencies and communities add to the educational possibilities of our region and state.


EOU Welcome!

In the Eastern Oregon University catalog you’ll find information about our liberal arts and professional programs - quality programs that prepare you for the world beyond college. We work with you to make your education accessible and affordable. Classes are available when and where you need them - at our main campus in La Grande, online from anywhere in the world, or onsite at 11 centers across the state. Pursuing your education with us also means you’ll be working with faculty who bring real-world experience to the table and staff who want to see you succeed.

When it comes to finances, students on average are paying thousands less to attend EOU than other public and private institutions in our neighborhood. Whoa, what was that? We said thousands less. We think our “Core Themes” sum it all up pretty well and reflect why we are committed to providing you with a personal, student centered experience in all that we do.

Together, it’s possible!
