Central Washington University President James Gaudino has been making the rounds in the Wenatchee Valley in recent weeks, looking for ways that the college might serve this area. He wants to know what the challenges are here in North Central Washington and if there are ways that CWU can be helpful.

Gaudino has some creative ideas about how to deliver effective education differently than the traditional model. CWU has had courses delivered here via closed-circuit television as well as on-campus offerings, but Gaudino sees an opportunity to use both technology to deliver more coursework enhanced by face-to-face interactions with a local instructor. The university views satellite campuses like Wenatchee as portals, in recognition of the need to deliver education differently.
