Dean Borjesson’s Notes from the Palouse

Sometimes academia can be rough. We have real challenges with staffing shortages, equipment needs, and turnover without the ability to be fully nimble in our responses. But there is something. Something in our many missions that compel faculty and staff to stay and discover, educate, and reach out.

Work-life balance survey results

The response was tremendous. Thank you to the more than 2,000 faculty and staff members who provided honest feedback, including the submission of more than 1,100 thoughtful comments.

Executive Budget Council update

As a new budget model that can better align WSU’s resource allocation with its strategic priorities is finalized, a governance process to support the implementation of the new model also is being developed.

Celebrating Pride Month

WSU leaders ask that all employees continue to be an ally, and to complete the LGBTQ+ Ally Training available through Human Resource Services if they haven’t yet done so.

Celebrating our progress over the last year

From resuming in‑person instruction and events to advancing OneWSU planning and installing our inaugural chancellor of the Pullman campus—a lot has changed for the university community.
