Dear WSU Community,
I hope you are all settled into the new semester and enjoying the
relatively mild weather we’ve been experiencing throughout the state
of Washington (at least until recently). Like many of you, I suspect,
the lack of snow over the last couple of weeks had me envisioning
longer, warmer days with plenty of sunshine for walking the dog and
firing up the grill. Until then, I’ll begin preparing my Airstream
for the summer camping season this March — Noel and I cannot wait.
During this busy time across the WSU system, I want to express
my heartfelt appreciation for our incredible faculty and staff.
Thanks to you, WSU continues to fulfill the core tenets of our
land-grant mission. From supporting student success to enriching
our communities statewide, the highlights included below reflect
a large body of work where Cougs came together to cultivate change
on behalf of our students and the state.
While we consider the challenges and opportunities ahead of us,
I want to ensure that we continue to celebrate all that we’ve
achieved together as a system.
Thank you for all that you do to support Washington State
University and Go Cougs!
