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 huftill@sou.edu

Classes held at the Higher Education Center (HEC) in Medford - room 129B - unless otherwise noted. Be aware that you can park on the streets by the HEC on Saturday, parking is not enforced.
