Southern Oregon University

To provide support for early childhood professionals in the community and to allow our online students a venue to work face-to-face with their peers, we have developed a series of Early Childhood Development Workshops.  They are open to students and non-students. Current ECD or EE majors can register through MySOU, other SOU students may email the instructor for override to register. One unit of ED 399 credit will be available for those that attend for the full 8 hours and complete the final project.  For more information contact Angela at 541-552-6332 or
