Student Affairs

WSU’s Division of Student Affairs is committed to maximizing the student experience from the minute they first make contact with WSU all the way until they graduate and become contributing members of our global society. Our dedicated staff members specialize in community outreach, student health and wellbeing, leadership building, civic engagement, and cultural appreciation, to name just a few.

On a broader perspective, we work with constituents throughout the state, country, and world to deliver on the university’s core mission of preparing students for productive and successful lives. As a result, WSU students prosper personally and academically from being part of an exciting, dynamic, and diverse student body.

The results of our student-centered approach seem clear— WSU has a reputation for producing exceptional team players, problem solvers, and creative thinkers. These qualities attract a wide range of prospective employers. In fact, a recent Wall Street Journal survey put WSU in the top 25 U.S. universities from which recruiters most want to hire graduates—the only university in the Northwest to make the list.

Such an affirmation of the WSU difference may be directly traced to our continuing emphasis on four essential life components:

  • Learning…to Make a Difference
  • Signature Leadership Experiences
  • Vibrant Campus Communities
  • Wellbeing: Healthy, and Engaged for a Sustainable World

Within each of these essential components, an array of special programs, internships, workshops, educational campaigns, and resource centers encourage personal growth and service opportunities.
