What is a Tier-one Research Institution?
This means that the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has ranked Washington State University in the top ten as having the highest research activity among other universities that award doctoral degrees. The rankings are based on a number of factors, including expenditures for research and development, number of research staff, and the number of doctoral degrees awarded.
As Washington State’s land grant university, WSU delivers knowledge and the benefits of research activities to people throughout the state and the world. There are hundreds of examples of how the research of our faculty and students has positively influenced business, industry, education, health sciences, government, and communities around the globe.
