The WWU Alumni Association invites you to the fifth annual Paint B'ham Blue for WWU, an event welcoming our new and returning Vikings to Western!
Western Washington University is the highest-ranking public, master’s-granting university in the Pacific Northwest for the 21st year in a row, according to the 2021 U.S. News & World Report college rankings.
Western's Intensive English Program (IEP) is expanding its programming to offer four online options starting this fall to international and domestic students looking to learn English to further their professional career or enter into a major with Western.
The four options are designed to give students flexibility in length and format; program lengths range from four to 10 weeks. Each program has synchronous and asynchronous components.
Requesting & Borrowing Books and Materials
In addition to being able to request library materials for on-site pickup or mail delivery, all current Western Washington University students, staff, and faculty may now place requests for items from participating Summit libraries. The on-site pick up times are still Tuesdays and Fridays between 10 a.m. and noon, and items that are selected for mail delivery are mailed each Wednesday.
Western's Career Services Center will this fall offer a series of Wednesday webinars designed to assist and inform soon-to-be WWU grads entering the job market. See dates and times below.
Governor Inslee is deeply saddened by the death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 87, and directs that Washington State and United States flags at all state agency facilities be lowered to half-staff in her memory immediately.
The flags will be at half-staff until the day of internment. Once that date has been established, we will send out another notification to advise when the flags will be returned to full-staff.
Please notify your staff and all of your field offices and facilities around the state.
The FY21 budget recommendations (Western login required) are now available for your review and feedback. Comments, critiques and suggestions for improvements are being sought through Sept. 29.
Western is committed to having a safe and healthy campus, and as part of this, all on-site students at Western’s Bellingham campus must be tested continuously. Many students have submitted their results from COVID testing this week in preparation for their arrival on campus, but staff have also heard from a large number of students who haven't been able to access testing because poor air quality from wildfires has closed test sites throughout the state.
