Your ideas and constructive criticism related to the Drive to 25 initiative is invited. In fact, it’s essential to our success. Achieving Top 25 stature truly requires an ongoing dialogue and the involvement of the entire WSU community.

So please share examples of Top 25-like WSU achievements, ideas about how we can better communicate our successes, and other thoughts, such as:

  • If you could make one change that would make WSU a top 25 by 2030, what would it be?
  • Is there a topic, research area, partner, or student success opportunity that you think WSU should be engaging but isn’t? What is it and why?
  • Imagine you had unlimited dollars to invest, and the only requirement was that you had to use the money to help WSU do a better job of fulfilling its land-grant mission of teaching, research, and engagement. How would you spend that money?

We look forward to publishing comments in this space. You may share your input anonymously. If you prefer to email your thoughts, please send them to

Note: Feedback of any nature is welcome. Comments regarding the Drive to 25 initiative will be published here. All other input will be forwarded separately to the Office of the President for consideration.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us! Your feedback is awaiting moderation.

As a Regents Professor and Eminent Faculty Award winner, I am extremely disappointed that among the over 30 cards enclosed in the Drive to Twenty-Five package there is not a single image of the arts at WSU, especially in light of the numerous prestigious achievements in the School of Music.

I feel this was a great way to inform and involve faculty/staff. The goals and achievements of WSU as a whole are very marketable. I do feel that a great way to engage students in different majors as an undergrad is to provide more advertisement/resources for RSOs that help provide skills and athletics for WSU. Example: CAHNRS current clubs. Students want to be engaged and have opportunities in which they achieve something and build relationships.

Our sidewalks are in a state of decay and combined with the need to park farther from our offices are increasing safety concerns. We need to address these situations and find a corrective measure.

In order to be the kind of research institution that we are aiming to be, more investment in access to our libraries, online access to scholarly journals, and opportunities for research funding is needed, not less.
Also, the number one thing that would help us fulfill our land grant missions is more teaching faculty, specifically tenure track faculty.

“Top 25” universities have strong statistics/biostatistics departments and capabilities. We all need statistics help for our research and this has been underfunded for decades. Need to add stat faculty and consulting services or stat faculty to be co-PIs on grants.
