The Impact of Your Support
Your support will enable us to provide professional development opportunities for our MIS students. Check out the short video above to learn how these opportunities have helped Gabriel, who is one of our MIS student leaders. The video also shows scenes from our recent 8th Annual "Western IS Connection" which is a student-industry event designed to help students develop their "professional readiness" by interacting and learning from industry professionals. This year's event attracted over 25 business professionals and 100 students.
Why We Need Your Support
We must rely on donations to provide extracurricular activities to enhance the professional development of our MIS students.
For this year’s WWU Give Day we request your support to fund our “professional readiness” initiatives for the upcoming academic year. Our goal is to raise $2,500. Donations of any size are welcome and appreciated!
All donations made during this year’s WWU Give Day on May 30, 2019 will be matched in some way:
- The first $250 in gifts to the MIS program will be matched dollar for dollar by one of our program's supporters (up to $100 per donor).
- After the first $250, donations will be matched through WWU’s Give Day Challenge Pool fund (matching rate is estimated to be ~ 30%).
- Gifts made by 2015-19 alums will be matched dollar for dollar through the generosity of Dave and Ann Mann.
- Does your employer match gifts made to a university? If so, then your employer may be able to match a portion of your donation.
Thank you for your support -- Your gift will make a difference for our MIS students!
MIS at WWU
The Management Information Systems (MIS) program at Western Washington University (WWU) is thriving and at full capacity. To prepare our students for their careers, our program provides a solid foundation of concepts and skills, combined with hands-on assignments and projects. The classwork is supplemented with extracurricular opportunities to promote "professional readiness." The job placement for our MIS students is outstanding.
