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.

1. I think we need to understand why students are leaving in their junior and senior year without a degree. How can we get them back to finish their last 15-30 credits? We need a F5R program.
2. All new students should participate in a Freshmen or New Student seminar beyond orientation.

1. 3rd theme listed in engagement and outreach. You should significantly increase funding for the Center for Civic Engagement Office. Office participates in every facet of campus and community.

Asking all departments to across the board to give up 5 percent of their budget is like a regressive tax. I have seen this approach taken numerous times in my career and it punishes the departments that are the best stewards of their dollars and creates bad feelings.

One challenge we are experiencing is clinical research space. We have funded projects, but having appropriate space to do the work is a challenge. What additional resources will come to medicine to support funded clinical research? Thanks!
