For 11 years in a row, U.S. News and World Report have ranked Western Washington University as the best regional public university in the Pacific Northwest, and #2 in the western United States.
With an enrolment of 13,000 students, Western Washington University is large enough to offer tremendous choice in academic programs, people to meet, and things to do, yet small enough that you won't get lost in the crowd.
Over 98% of classes at Western are taught by distinguished faculty. At Western, graduate students are not here to teach your classes. We are committed to putting you face to face with seasoned professors every day.
Western is committed to creating a community that values a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, identities, and opinions. Diversity contributes to academic quality.
Most students enrich their education through internships, international study, field work, service-learning, and other "hands-on" experiences.
Student satisfaction, graduation, and employment rates are among the highest in the state of Washington.
Connecting with people, cultures, and events across the globe is a high priority. This value may be one reason why Western is ranked third on the U.S. Peace Corps 2007 listing of "Top Producing Colleges and Universities" in the medium-sized schools category.
