College Chats for Educators

Learn and connect with other counselors and college access professionals!

Join us on Thursdays at 2:00 pm for a video call to connect with others who work with students helping them prepare, apply, pay and go to college. Each hour-long call will include a short presentation on a timely topic, followed by discussion questions so you can learn and share from others who do similar work in Oregon.

Upcoming Chats Topics
Chats will return in fall 2021
