A Greater Future.
From You. Through Us. To the World.
Our state has come to expect great things from the College of Education. We’re known as a leader in Education, absolutely. But our alumni are changing the world in a number of fields, including fields in athletic training, kinesiology, and sport management. And the research our faculty are engaged in across a number of disciplines is cutting edge. To be clear: these endeavors are not arbitrary. They’re inspired by a greater vision for the future and guided by our college’s vision and mission.
We may be a powerhouse in all these areas. Our impact may be so much greater than the sum of our parts. Our greatness may have grown to include the lives we reach and enrich, and the sustainable solutions that help transform our state and help our state’s resident. But none of this can happen without you. As we continues to build a healthier, more resilient, more equitable world, we ask you keep being our partner and continue financially assisting these efforts.
Generous gifts by our donors provide scholarships and assistantships, funding for research, funding for student clubs, and a variety of other important programs. Gifts of any size help the college provide our students with an exceptional education and help our faculty pursue research to benefit students and educators around the globe. The best way to invest depends on your life circumstances and personal goals, and every gift counts! Your gifts have power!
Please consider a gift to support the College of Education’s priorities below:
College of Education Dean’s Fund for Excellence
The Dean’s Excellence Fund is one of the best and broadest ways to support the work of the College of Education. This is the college’s most flexible fund and provides ongoing annual support that allows the dean to meet the immediate and strategic needs of the college. In the past, gifts to this fund have been used for student scholarships as well as support of faculty members and special programs.
College of Education Scholarship Fund
The College of Education Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students of all majors within the College of Education. This fund is used to recruit and retain high-performing students and to help alleviate the financial burdens of pursuing a college education.
WSU ROAR Programmatic Fund
WSU ROAR aims to provide a fully inclusive college experience for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Two years of person-centered planning and an immersive, on-campus living environment help empower these students to grow as professionals, achieve independence, and be a part of the Cougar family. Gifts to this fund are used to provide educational, professional, and community resources; support participant activities; and address program needs as WSU ROAR continues to grow.
WSU ROAR Scholarship Fund
As the only program of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, WSU ROAR has the potential to have an enormous impact on the lives of students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. However, as is true for many of their peers, cost can be a limiting factor, and most (if not all) ROAR students will depend on scholarships to complete the program. This fund supports accessibility for current and future ROAR participants.
