The legistative support and strong partnerships with ECC and PC supports CWU’s mission of access.</p><p>Frank said providing flexible timing and locations for degree programs has never been more important. Central’s university centers provide access to those who cannot attend the main campus but desire a quality education.</p><p><u><strong>Background</strong></u><br>The university centers were established in the mid 70s and both state-funded degree program offerings started in 2006.</p><p>CWU has six university centers and two instructional sites, in addition to its residential campus in Ellensburg. Centers are located throughouout the state in Lynnwood, Des Moines, Lakewood, Moses Lake, Wenatchee, and Yakima – with new instructional sites at Joint Base Lewis-McChord and Sammamish.</p><p>To learn more about CWU Centers and their offerings, visit <a href="http://www.cwu.edu/about/cwu-campus-locations" target="_blank">CWU Centers web page</a>.&nbsp;</p><p>Media contact: Dawn Alford, public affairs coordinator, 509-963-1484, Dawn.Alford@cwu.edu.</p></br>2016-2017 Registration Handbookhttps://www.cwu.edu/lynnwood/node/2715Fri, 08 Jul 2016 10:40:32<p>The 2016-2017 new student registration handbook is now available. &nbsp;<a href="http://catalog.acalog.cwu.edu/index.php?catoid=48">Click here</a> For access to important information regarding registration, academic calendars, and more, click here.</p><p style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://catalog.acalog.cwu.edu/index.php?catoid=48"><img alt="Student Registration Handbook" src="/lynnwood/sites/cts.cwu.edu.lynnwood/files/2016-17%20Student%20Registration%20Handbook.png" style="width: 100px; height: 129px;"></a></p></p style="text-align: center;">Congratulations 2016 Graduateshttps://www.cwu.edu/lynnwood/node/2707Fri, 17 Jun 2016 09:12:21<p>320 Students participated in the Westside Commencement Ceremony on June 12th, 2016 at the Kent ShoWare Center. &nbsp;Congratulations Graduates!</p><p>Here are a few pictures!!!</p><p><img alt="" src="/lynnwood/sites/cts.cwu.edu.lynnwood/files/Masters%202016%20WS.jpg" style="width: 250px; height: 169px;"></p><p><strong><span style="line-height: 1.4;">Our Master's Graduates!!</span></strong></p><p><img alt="" src="/lynnwood/sites/cts.cwu.edu.lynnwood/files/Undergrads%202016%20WS%20closeup.jpg" style="line-height: 1.4; width: 200px; height: 328px;"></p><p><strong>Our Bachelor's Graduates!!</strong></p></span style="line-height: 1.4;">Triton Alert - Emergency Notification Systemhttps://www.cwu.edu/lynnwood/node/2650Mon, 19 May 2014 10:00:52<p><strong>The Triton Alert</strong> - Emergency Notification System is used to notify Edmonds Community College and CWU Lynnwood campus and community members when there is a campus closure or emergency&nbsp;situation.&nbsp; Anyone can sign up on their mobile devices to receive text messages and/or email notifications.
