Core Theme Three

Scholarship and Creative Expression: CWU is committed to the creation, dissemination, and preservation of knowledge through research, scholarship, and creative expression. Engagement in scholarly and creative expression activities adds benefit for students, the university, and local, regional, and global communities. These activities engage students, faculty, and staff in activities that expand knowledge of the natural and physical world, explore human behavior and culture in the past and present, develop organizational practices and technological innovations that support human and economic development, and improve the quality of life through cultural enrichment.

CWU places a high value on the full spectrum of scholarship and creative expression, including but not limited to basic and applied research, creative expression in all its forms, and the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Objective 3.1: Increase the emphasis on and the opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to participate in research, scholarship, and creative expression activities.

Objective 3.2: Increase the external funding received for research, scholarship, and creative expression by faculty, staff, and students.
