Western's annual President's Report is an effort to bring to campus important stories and information about the state of the university, its many successes, and an evaluation of its current efforts to meet the goals laid forth in its strategic plan, and how progress on those goals is being measured via the plan's strategic pillars: Advancing Inclusive Success, Increasing Washington Impact and Enhancing Academic Excellence.
The President's Report contains progress metrics, stories of student success, a report from the Western Foundation on its annual giving and its capital campaign progress, a financial summary of the university's last fiscal year, and more. Unique to this version of the report are a set of inspiring stories of strength and sacrifice that are part of the First Gen Project, an ongoing work created by Woodring College of Education Professor Lauren McClanahan.

It is important to note that the tables and data presented in the report were accurate at the report's printing at the end of last spring. For the most up-to-date data, the Provost's Office and the Office of Institutional Effectiveness maintains a website with all the metrics for progress towards the goals of the strategic plan, from overall goals to more granular, detailed statistics and year-by-year information.
