Our Commitment to Diversity

At Eastern Washington University, we are committed to a campus climate that welcomes and respects diversity. These efforts are championed by our campus leadership and the Office for Diversity and Inclusion. EWU is a microcosm of society reflecting diversity of people, ideas, beliefs and philosophies.

Eastern Washington University is located in the city of Cheney, WA, a thriving small town community located 17 miles southwest of Spokane. The Cheney community provides a rural, family friendly atmosphere and home to its EWU Eagles.

Nearby Spokane, WA, is the financial, cultural and retail center for a large area of Washington, Idaho and Western Montana known as the Inland Northwest. Spokane, the 2nd largest city in the state of Washington, lives up to its tagline, “Near Nature, Near Perfect.” The Spokane-Cheney area offers the benefits of residing in a metropolitan area, including a rich arts and culture scene, with nearby opportunities for small town living.
