Welcome to Central Washington University's Office of the President

The mission of the Office of the President is to guide and support the university’s efforts to be a leader in higher education in the state of Washington and to prepare students from diverse backgrounds for enlightened, responsible, and productive lives.

About the office of the President

“At Central, the word ‘Welcome’ is more than a greeting. It’s a commitment to having a diverse and inclusive academic community where we embrace what makes us different. Student success is the focus and measure of everything we do. Our classes are small enough that professors know their students’ names and engage with them through experiential learning. It’s all part of what we call the Wildcat Way.”

James Gaudino
