Chemeketa – a gathering place
Chemeketa is proud to provide the first steps in teacher training by offering the required academic core and education courses that help students work towards their teaching degrees. These opportunities include campus courses, opportunities for college credit in high schools, and a unique evening and weekend schedule to meet the needs of working adult students. Chemeketa also provides students with an academic pathway to continue their education degrees at Pacific, George Fox and other universities.
We are committed to transforming lives and communities through exceptional learning experiences.
Our actions affirm our values, the character of the college, and how we do our work.
We are a college community enriched by the diversity of our students, staff, and community members. Each individual and group has the potential to contribute in our learning environment. Each has dignity. To diminish the dignity of one is to diminish the dignity of us all.
We care for, trust, and respect each other and the world around us through our words and our actions.
We innovate through reflection, analysis, creativity, and bold ideas. We design quality instruction, programs, and services to prepare students to meet the changing needs of our communities in a global society.
We collaborate with others to ensure purposeful and effective programs and services that support all students’ access to opportunities for educational achievement. We welcome diverse perspectives and encourage the free exchange of ideas.
