College of Education

The College of Education is both a traditional and modern college of education. While its legacy has always been teacher preparation and educational leadership, the college also offers a robust sport management program, and improves lives on a daily basis through its graduates in athletic training, and sport science. The college has a rich research portfolio, and the fruits of those labors have aided, and continue to aid, the college as it helps solve our societal grand challenges.

WSU ROAR Programmatic Fund

WSU ROAR aims to provide a fully inclusive college experience for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Two years of person-centered planning and an immersive, on-campus living environment help empower these students to grow as professionals, achieve independence, and be a part of the Cougar family. Gifts to this fund are used to provide educational, professional, and community resources; support participant activities; and address program needs as WSU ROAR continues to grow.

WSU ROAR Scholarship Fund

As the only program of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, WSU ROAR has the potential to have an enormous impact on the lives of students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. However, as is true for many of their peers, cost can be a limiting factor, and most (if not all) ROAR students will depend on scholarships to complete the program. This fund supports accessibility for current and future ROAR participants.
