Why give to the College of Education?
This year we found ourselves challenged to continue our mission of delivering a world class education to future teachers, nurses, education leaders and administrators, and health and human services professionals while navigating the everchanging obstacles of a global pandemic. We faced those obstacles, made adjustments and modifications continually, and found many successes through virtual learning environments.

In order to support our students during their time at Western, we have set four strategic priorities: justice-oriented diversity practices, high-quality programs, community relationships and partnerships, and research and knowledge creation.
On Give Day this year, you can help us honor that commitment by supporting scholarships to help ensure that every student has the opportunity for success.
Of particular note, one of our newer priorities is the Athletes to Educators scholarship, which supports student athletes learning to become educators and coaches. One of our generous donors and a WWU alum, Mike Colacarro, '69, has agreed to match the first $20,000 given to that fund this year on a one-to-one basis!
You can also choose to give to any of the departments listed below! To learn more about Woodring departments, programs, and resource centers, please visit https://wce.wwu.edu/.
