The Environmental Education Program is an integral part of the southern Oregon community.  Graduate students regularly volunteer, intern, or work with local organizations to gain a wider breadth of experience. 


 The EE program maintains strong partnerships with groups such as Southern Oregon Regional Environmental Education Leaders (SOREEL), Bear Creek Watershed Educational Program (BCWEP), and Friends of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, often encouraging graduate students to represent Southern Oregon University.  The time invested in these programs occurs outside of curriculum requirements.
