Why Washington State University?
Did you know that University means “Unity in Diversity?” We all understand that diversity is vital to learning because it opens up our minds to new ideas and cultures and ways of understanding. Here at Washington State University, we embrace diversity–not just the cultural richness that comes from our international community, but the way that we learn and come to understand our complex world. Graduate students from all regions of the globe have come here to learn and grow and return home to make their own communities better places. If you seek to do good in the world, our learning community will engage, challenge, and equip you for lifelong success. Come to WSU and find true unity in diversity.
