Dear Campus Community:
Western is committed to the ongoing health and safety of our campus community. Students and employees who know, or who have reason to believe, that they are infected with a communicable disease have an ethical and legal obligation to conduct themselves in ways that minimize exposure in order to protect themselves and others and to inform the appropriate university administrator.
WWU's Central Health and Safety Committee shared the following resources to help individuals stay safe while adjusting to the light change with the end of daylight savings time.
Applications are now being south for two faculty grant programs, below.
Thaddeus Spratlen and Lois Price-Spratlen Inclusion and Diversity Grant
Western Washington University’s Industrial Design junior class will showcase a sustainable entrepreneurship exhibition “ReMade: Culinary” from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 2 at Ideal, located at 1227 Cornwall Ave. in Bellingham.
Products will stay on display and for sale at Ideal until Nov. 16.
In just a few weeks, each of the 12 students designed a product, sourced all the recycled and repurposed materials, produced a limited edition run of 20 of the items, and created all packaging and branding for their piece.
The Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) Program’s annual open enrollment begins Thursday, Nov. 1, and ends Friday, Nov.30.
Open enrollment is your chance to make changes to your health plan benefits. All changes made during open enrollment are effective Jan. 1, 2019.
November 8 marks the 53rd anniversary of the signing of the 1965 Higher Education Act (HEA), which has helped millions of low-income students become the first members of their families to earn college degrees. At Western, a first-generation student is defined as students who are the first in their family to attend university, i.e. their parents did not complete a university degree.
WWU students, staff and faculty members are committed to outstanding teaching, scholarship, leadership and community service and periodically the Western community has the opportunity to recognize some of our exceptional community members. The following annual awards are examples of the university community’s efforts to recognize and show appreciation to faculty members and others for their service and outstanding achievements. WWU Provost Brent Carbajal encourages nominations for these awards.
With a desire to create a tool lending option on campus that students and faculty could use for energy/engineering related projects, Aden Nevler, Patrick Shive, and Max Schneider wrote and submitted a grant through the Sustainable Action Fund Grant Program (now the Sustainability, Equity, and Justice Fund Grant Program). The Energy Tool Lending Library offers free access to professional equipment for research and energy related projects, while not burdening professors with the cost of providing critical materials to enhance their classes.
WWU's International Student and Scholar Services International Cooking Class program will host a Chinese Cooking Class from 5-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 6 in Community Food Coop- Connection Building, 405 East Holly St.
