HECC and Department of Corrections - Senate Bill 269 Advisory Committee 

The Oregon Legislature established an advisory body related to the state agreements related to corrections education through Senate Bill 269 (2023). This legislation required that HECC and the Department of Corrections enter into an Memorandum of Understanding, to be reviewed annually, related to corrections education. The advisory body was established to assist with development, review, and monitoring of the MOU. Find public meeting materials for the Committee below.
