What Partcipants are saying

  • "I just wanted to share how much I have appreciated the email class offered through the CWE Center. I took the class in the Spring and it has changed my life! My goal for each day is to have an empty "day" in my in-basket and while I don't always make it to zero, I come close on a regular basis."
  • "I found at least 5 things I could be doing differently that I think will immediately help myself and those I work with."  
  • "The class should be a pre-requisite before getting access to OHSU email. We waste so much time with miscommunication."  
  •  "I loved the tips & tricks we learned for writing emails, and steps for efficient email processing."
