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

Let’s all ask lawmakers to support higher education – today

wsu impact alumni contact

Today, we sent a call to action to our WSU Impact members. We are taking our cue from WSU President Schulz who has been in Olympia several times this legislation session. We are also supporting WSU students who took time on President’s Day to visit the state capitol and several recent graduates of WSU who joined other alumni in supporting higher education. Now it is our turn to share our views and support with our legislators. Please use the tools available through WSU Impact and take action today. It’s easy, it’s free, and most importantly – it’s effective! If a member, log in here. If not, join and in one click, you will be connected to the inboxes of your three legislators and can send a message of support for WSU legislative priorities

Last month, Washington State University President Kirk Schulz delivered his first State of the University address. In his remarks, President Schulz hailed WSU’s many innovative programs, which offer students an opportunity to develop career-ready skills while also contributing significantly to the state’s economy.

From human medicine to veterinary medicine to agriculture to environmental research, the students and faculty at WSU are seizing educational opportunities and making huge scientific strides that net national attention — but, as President Schulz reminded us, we can’t do it without help from the Washington Legislature.


President Schulz is getting to know his way around Olympia and visiting with legislative colleagues. WSU Impact makes it easy for you to take action and support WSU in Olympia, but all from the comfort of your smart phone, tablet, or computer!

“As I go look around the country, the State of Washington is one of the few that still aggressively, positively supports higher education,” said President Schulz. Funding for WSU’s new medical college, additional student seats for high demand engineering degrees, and labs to support WSU’s research are just some of the critical components that Washington needs to support and fund.

“Our job is to advocate for why these things are important,” President Schulz stated.

With the resources and tools of WSU Impact, it can be our job, too!

Record numbers of students are enrolling at our WSU campuses all over the state and the President’s ambitious Drive to 25 plan will elevate the University’s success and make an impact right here at home, for our state. If we want WSU to continue to be a university that provides excellent education that helps students achieve big things, we need our lawmakers to know.

We want to join the President in being effective advocates for quality education and impactful research. While your elected officials are in Olympia, please use your personalized resources and tell your lawmakers how much we appreciate their continued support of higher education and WSU.

We make it easy. If already a member of WSU Impact, please log in and take action today. Please review the information under “Current Issues” on your personalized home page. You can take action on all four of WSU priorities or on the priority that is of most interest to you.

Thank you for being an advocate for WSU and higher education. Together, we will make a difference.
