“Active Minds Changing Lives” is an essential element to understanding Western Washington University’s campus and community. It is a definition, an explanation, a motivator and our vision for the future. We are changemakers now, and we strive to be better.
Western provides its community with an abundance of opportunities to actively engage in meaningful, experiential learning in and out of the classroom. This has led to campus and community engagement, which is especially evident in our strong connection with non-profits that are committed to social change.
We have more than 260 active student clubs, most oriented around social activism and long-term change. We have self-organized faculty groups who continually reaffirm our campus commitment to providing meaningful education for students.
