EOU will receive $4 million in state funding to restore the historic Grand Staircase on the north side of the La Grande campus as both a practical access point and distinctive architectural feature of the community and region.
“This investment in restoration of the Grand Staircase will enable us to take care of a historic community icon and leverage a significant connection between the university and community,” Vice President for University Advancement Tim Seydel said. “It means a great deal to many of our alumni, community members and friends of the university. Credit for keeping this project moving forward goes to our Staircase workgroup, which spent many years advocating for this historically significant stairway that has been a part of EOU since our founding.”
