Academic Master Plan

Academic Master Plan

Over the course of the last year and a half, WSU Tri-Cities has been engaged in a reflective and collaborative process to establish a clear plan to guide our campus in growth, innovation and quality service to our community and WSU family.

Community members, industry, k-12 education and commerce have all contributed to this plan through various focus groups, consultation and public forums. Faculty and staff have been involved in the development of programmatic plans for the next fifteen years. Input and guidance from our WSU family have been used to help shape this plan as well.

Below you will find a link to the WSU Tri-Cities Academic Master Plan PDF. You are encouraged to download and review the plan. While the document is large, most of it is reference materials used to support the plan. The first 28 pages holds most of the information.

After reviewing the plan, we would greatly appreciate feedback by taking our short survey linked below.  We will be taking public input until May 29th, 2015.

Thank you for your valued input.
