Portland State University (PSU) and Eastern Oregon University (EOU) are leading an effort, along with their community partners, to create an Urban-Rural Ambassadors Summer Institute, a two-week, six-credit residential summer institute for undergraduate students to explore urban and rural connections in Oregon, and to develop the collaborative skills to work across Oregon’s urban-rural divide.

Clackamas Middle College is a public charter high school sponsored by North Clackamas School District.
Clackamas Middle College enrolls students from all over the Portland Metro Area. Our students come from varied socio-economic and academic backgrounds with 12 different languages spoken. We have 296 students enrolled within four of our programs aimed at postsecondary readiness.

Regional Achievement Collaborative Initiative

Achieving our educational goals requires engaging communities beyond the classroom. The Oregon Education Investment Board (OEIB) has launched the Regional Achievement Collaborative Initiative (RAC) to forge connections that increase educational outcomes.
