About

High Quality: Western embraces a student-centered focus that emphasizes learning and teaching as a core institutional belief. Western students are taught and mentored by a faculty of scholars and are exposed to a full range of educational opportunities in smaller class sizes. Western supports a broad range of different learning styles and opportunities – from its Honors Program to hands-on applied research with its faculty, both in the lab and out in the field.

Accessible: As a state university, Western provides a viable, high quality educational experience to a diverse cross-section of the region’s residents, including nontraditional students or groups that have historically been underrepresented in higher education. Western strives to foster campus diversity, build inclusiveness, and enable partnerships to succeed. For more information on these efforts, go to our Diversity at Western site.

Responsible: SCUs like Western create the skilled workforce to support the state’s business and needs while advancing economic progress and cultural development. As a place of public purpose, Western prepares its students for a life of leadership and service and enhances their abilities to attain financial independence after graduation.

Western, like its peer SCUs, is a smart investment, offering a high quality, accessible and affordable choice to earning a four-year baccalaureate degree, and shares the mission of its peers to make higher education available to anyone who is willing to work hard in order to be successful.
