An On-Line Program to Deliver Reading Endorsement and Reading Certificate Programs to Teachers
The ReadOregon program is a collaborative effort of five universities in the Oregon University System — Oregon State University, Eastern Oregon University, Portland State University, Southern Oregon University, and Western Oregon University — in cooperation with OUS Departments of Distance and Continuing Education.
