Join KCC, OIT, SOU, and RCC for a special announcement on Nov. 29!
Four Southern Oregon institutions of higher education invite you to join them this Thursday for a ceremony to formalize their commitment to collectively leveraging resources to better serve learners and communities throughout the southern Oregon region.
The ceremony celebrates the development of the Southern Oregon Higher Education Consortium, a partnership among Klamath Community College, Oregon Institute of Technology, Rogue Community College, and Southern Oregon University.
Presidents of the four institutions will sign a consortium memorandum of understanding at two special events Thursday, one at KCC in Klamath Falls and one at the RCC/SOU Higher Education Center in Medford.
The keynote speaker at the Klamath Falls event will be Randy Cox, executive director of the Klamath County Economic Development Association (KCEDA) in Klamath Falls. Randy is an industry expert with more than 20 years of experience in the building products industry. He spent the majority of his career with Jeld-Wen, where he served the company in several senior management roles throughout the globe.

To KCEDA Randy brings a wealth of experience that will complement the organization’s focus on catalyzing the growth of traded sector businesses.
