Retrospective: EdM collaboration
August 12, 2014
There are seven outstanding Master of Education (EdM) students doing their course work in Puyallup. For four of them, it wouldn’t truly be summer without a road trip.
Students from Puyallup’s EdM program recently joined up with those from Vancouver.
Those four recently traveled south, rented a cabin at
Battle Ground Lake State Park, visited WSU’s Vancouver campus, and meet the instructors and other students face to face.
It was a good experience for all involved.
The Ed.M. degree program is designed for students with a bachelor’s degree who have an interest in deepening their knowledge in a specific content area (inside or outside the College of Education), as well as educational research in curriculum and instruction.
More information on all of the college’s graduate programs can be found on the
Office of Graduate Education webpage.

Brandon Chapman joined the College of Education in August, 2013. He helps share the great things accomplished at the College of Education. Perhaps it’s leading research. Perhaps it’s scholarly publications. Maybe it’s a great story about a faculty or staff member, or even a student. Whatever the case, it’s Brandon’s job to get the word out there, to both internal and external sources.
Brandon has more than 12 years experience in marketing and communications, including with the Department of Early Learning, various local radio stations and TV stations, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and Sports Illustrated. He most recently headed PR and media relations efforts for Longview Fibre Paper and Packaging.
He spent two seasons (2006 and 2007) as a professional baseball play-by-play broadcaster.
Brandon received his master’s degree in broadcast journalism from Syracuse University’s prestigious S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
Before that, he earned his B.A. from WSU’s Edward R. Murrow School of Communication (he double majored in Spanish). He was a sports editor at The Daily Evergreen, and took an active role with both Cable 8 and KUGR. He was a WSU Community College President’s Award recipient. He won the Murrow Award in 2004, as well as winning the first ever Keith Jackson Award for excellence in sports broadcasting for a student.
He received his associate’s degree in Radio/TV from Centralia College.
Brandon is married to Sarah and they have four boys. Brandon is a Pullman City Councilmember, having won his seat in November 2017.
