PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State University’s initiative to be recognized as one of the nation’s top 25 public research universities by the year 2030 will be discussed in a series of town hall meetings for faculty, staff and students in September and October.

Success in the Drive to 25 will be informed and measured largely by the metrics established by the Center for Measuring University Performance (CMUP) at Arizona State University and the University of Massachusetts Amherst. CMUP publishes a report each year identifying the top American research universities.
