What is Oregon Connections?

Oregon Connections, hosted by Nepris, connects industry professionals with educators to help students make connections between what they are learning and how it is used in the real world, the kinds of jobs people do that apply those concepts, and the real people who do those jobs for a living. Professionals share their expertise in classrooms or through real-time virtual conversations.
