Education Matters
Volume XXII · Issue IV
This issue is as wide and deep as the mighty Willamette, the banks of which presently are swollen by rain. If the COE had a fall theme, it was newness. New faculty, a new president, new branding, new scholarships, and of course, new students. On behalf of the faculty and staff, we hope you had an enjoyable fall and are looking forward to a relaxing Holiday season filled with family and friends and a healthy New Year. Your commitments toward the future inspire us to keep innovating and pushing forward for kids and families. It's going to be quite an exciting year!
Education Matters is distributed each term. Use the e-mail link below to contact the editor; physical letters are always welcome as well.
