Vision for WSU Tri-Cities


WSU Tri-Cities will be a culturally diverse destination campus with signature programs in the sciences and engineering that provide students with real-world opportunities supported by vibrant research and industry partnerships.

Realizing the Vision

  • Grow to serve 5,000 students, of which 80 percent will be undergraduates and 20 percent will be pursuing graduate degrees.
  • Secure status as the state’s only four-year public Hispanic Serving Institution and serve as a destination campus for students in the Mid-Columbia region who choose to attend college while living close to home.
  • Expand science and engineering programs focused on bioproducts and sustainable energy, wine science, and K-12 STEM education to result in signature programs with global impact and reputation.
  • Develop facilities and services that support the engagement of students and the campus community in activities, sports, lectures, cultural events and performances.
