Get Involved


The thousands of alumni, parents and friends of the university provide the margin of difference that has made WWU one of the top universities in the west. With their support, educational opportunities are created.


You do make a difference and we look forward to working with you on behalf of all who teach and learn at Western Washington University.

“Some analysts are saying we could be looking at $5 to $7 a gallon by 2012. This whole industry needs a wakeup call, and we just felt that the VRI is the most imaginative, hands-on group to get us the breakthrough design we need.“
