In a constantly changing world, the next generation of leaders will need to be critical and creative thinkers. They must be effective communicators, with both a broad knowledge that supports life-long learning, as well as training and expertise in a particular field. At Oregon’s private colleges, we educate graduates for the long haul, preparing them to recognize and solve problems, to communicate ideas and solutions persuasively, and to learn new skills and adapt to change quickly throughout their careers.
Personalized education means a better student experience and better outcomes.
Oregon’s independent colleges are focused on excellent teaching. It’s what we do best. Nationally, one of the strongest indicators of student success is class size. The 12:1 ratio student-to-faculty ratio means students have better access to their professors and academic advisors and they report higher levels of satisfaction.
