"Take Five" for WSU and higher education, In the News

“Take Five” for WSU and higher education: step-by-step guide to WSU Impact


Welcome to the fourth entry in our “Take Five” Initiative. We provide weekly tips, suggestions, examples, and the tools so you can take five minutes and be an effective advocate for higher education and WSU. This week we offer a step-by-step pictorial guide on how to access your personal home page to contact your legislators with just one click on your smart phone, pad, laptop, or computer. We encourage our members to share how your WSU education has made a difference (click here and here for examples) or share information from the good news stories in our series called “WSU: land grant mission in action, improving everyday lives” (click here for example messages).
