Support the College of Science and Engineering!
Gifts to the Dean’s fund enable us to respond to emergent needs and opportunities in support of students and faculty across the College of Science and Engineering. Examples include real-time support of student- and faculty-led ADEI initiatives, matching funds to enable acquisition of advanced research equipment, and seed grant money to enable the development of new academic programs and community partnerships.
Advanced Technology Building – Capital Campaign Project
Western’s new advanced technology engineering and computer science building (Kaiser Borsari Hall) is a direct response to the needs of Washington state industries and employers, as well as a step forward in addressing the access needs for our students interested in majoring in advanced technology fields. The building will be a place for collaboration and connection with spaces that foster innovation, investigation, and inspiration. Physically and culturally accessible, it will be a hub where industry experts, faculty, and students come together to co-create the technology and engineering solutions for today and tomorrow.
Alma Clark Glass Scholarship
The purpose of this scholarship is to reduce or eliminate anti-Black racism in STEM through productive relationships with and among Black and African American communities in the United States. The scholarship aims to support the success of students working toward this goal. The scholarship is named after Alma Clark Glass, who studied biology at WWU in 1906. Alma was the first Black person to enroll at Western.
Why Give to CSE?
Our mission is to serve the science and engineering needs of Washington State and the global community by advancing scholarship and educating thoughtful leaders & problem solvers. We know that some Western students have found this time to be very challenging. As a community it is important that we collectively recognize our ability to help, and to keep our focus and priorities on equitable access to education, inclusion, and providing opportunity.
WWU has a national reputation for high quality, hands-on research and learning opportunities for its students. CSE faculty participate directly in the classroom and laboratory instruction of our students in programs that emphasize independent student scholarship and the development of creative & innovative thinking. Graduates from CSE departments are prepared for a wide variety of professional opportunities in each of the disciplinary areas, and are ideally prepared for pre-professional programs that require scientific & technical backgrounds. Thank you for partnering with us in creating opportunities for our stellar students!
