Giving Societies Letter from the VP

Fall has come to Central Washington University and I could not be more excited. The reason why is simple --- our students are back on campus. 
They bring with them a renewed sense of excitement, possibility, and adventure as they actively engage in a central experience that is transforming them into the leaders our world needs most. 
They are encouraged and inspired by world-class faculty, staff, and administrators that allow them to become the fullest and best version of themselves in the classroom, on the athletic field, in the laboratory, and on center stage. The amazing thing about that is that you and I get to be a part of their story by investing our collective time, talents, and financial resources into their lives and education.  
This is an investment that pays dividends for a lifetime (in ours and in theirs). 
Like generations of Wildcats before them, they continue to be empowered and equipped with a Central Washington University education as they go into the world and make an impact by being leaders in their professions and in the communities that they will serve.  
Thank you for making this possible – for insuring that the legacy of a Central Washington University education lives on and thank you for being the hero of our student’s story.  
Your investment goes further here and changes the trajectory of our student’s lives, and for that we could not be more grateful.  
All the very best to you and yours during this fall season.  
As always, I welcome your feedback and perspective at any time.
