ELLENSBURG, Wash. (October 15, 2012) — A group of Central Washington University faculty and staff leaders will meet with community college and area business leaders throughout the state this week to find out what they consider to be the most pressing education needs.
The “Wildcat Caravan” will visit CWU-Moses Lake and CWU-Wenatchee on Tuesday, October 16; CWU-Kent and CWU-Pierce County on Wednesday, October 17; and CWU-Des Moines and CWU-Lynnwood on Thursday, October 18.
“We want them to share ideas with us so that we can be even more effective partners and increase educational opportunities,” said Margaret Badgley, CWU assistant vice president for University Centers, who is heading up the caravan.
CWU operates a total of eight university centers across Washington, which offer upper division courses in selected degree areas. They’re designed for place-bound and time-bound students who have completed their associate degrees.
“Our campuses are co-located with community colleges in order to make the transition from two- to four-year degree programs easy,” Badgley pointed out.
The public is also invited to provide online feedback about educational opportunities that may be missing in their communities here.
