Scholarship at CWU

CWU is committed to the creation, dissemination, and preservation of knowledge through research, scholarship, and creative expression. Engagement in scholarly and creative expression activities benefits students, the university, and local, regional, and global communities. As a member of the faculty, you are expected to be a teacher-scholar working in the interests of your students, your discipline, and the region.
