Mission Statement of EWU

EWU expands opportunities for personal transformation through excellence in learning.

EWU achieves this mission by:

  • fostering excellence in learning through quality academic programs, undergraduate and graduate student research and individual student-faculty interaction.  Students extend their learning beyond the classroom through co-curricular programs, life skills development, internship programs, volunteering and service learning.
  • creating environments for personal transformation that enrich the lives of individuals, families, communities and society at large.
  • expanding opportunity for all students by providing critical access to first generation students, underserved populations, place-bound students, and other students who may not have the opportunity for higher education.
  • developing faculty and staff by growing and strengthening an intellectual community and supporting professional development.
