About WOU

Western Oregon University’s environment is reminiscent of a small-town, liberal arts college, with its close-knit community and picturesque campus. However, as home to a nationally-recognized teacher-education program and other institutes, Western Oregon is steadily climbing the ranks of the nation’s leading public universities.

Western Oregon University’s location is one of its most attractive features. Situated in the Monmouth-Independence region in the Willamette Valley, Western Oregon is surrounded by lush landscapes and natural beauty, only 20 minutes from Salem and 75 minutes from Portland.

Western Oregon University is one of the nation’s leaders in teacher education and teaching research, and continues to grow as a leading authority in the field of education.

Technologically advanced classrooms, residence halls, libraries and other facilities are also examples of Western Oregon University’s progressive campus features.

The center for service learning and career development provides services that go beyond that of many schools. In addition to career counseling they offer student internships, career tours, workshops and career fairs.

Financial aid is available to eligible students through loans, grants, work-study, scholarships and other sources, all of which may be discussed with a financial aid counselor.
