2023 WWU Give Day Priority
This year, Western's top fundraising priority is Kaiser Borsari Hall — a building that exemplifies Western's commitment to graduating more future leaders in advanced technology engineering and computer science. Kaiser Borsari Hall will allow us to welcome more students who embody Western’s forward-thinking commitment to interdisciplinary teaching and learning — students like Tyanin Opdahl (that’s her up at the top of the page)!
Tyanin had very little coding experience when she transferred to Western a year and a half ago, but she knew she wanted to pursue a high-tech career, so she declared computer science her major. She’s also minoring in creative writing, and is now putting both fields of study to use in a faculty-led research project to root out biased language in artificial intelligence and machine learning courses. Kaiser Borsari Hall was designed with students like Tyanin in mind — students who are eager to collaborate across disciplines to solve the great problems of our time.
We’re excited that WWU Give Day is happening right as we celebrate the groundbreaking of this game-changing, carbon-neutral addition to our campus. It will have active-learning classrooms, teaching and research labs and spaces designed to support people with diverse abilities and learning styles. It will open more space to take interdisciplinary approaches to collaborative problem-solving around climate change, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence and more.
