College of Education Awarded TeachOregon Grant

Pacific COE becomes part of $699,000 TeachOregon consortium grant

TeachOregon is a Chalkboard Project initiative funded by Oregon’s leading philanthropic foundations that gives school districts and universities the opportunity to design innovative models to prepare the next generation of effective Oregon teachers and ultimately increase student achievement.
