President’s column: 125 years of innovation, impact

Perspectives-logoPULLMAN, Wash. – As Washington State University begins celebrating 125 years of innovation, education and impact in the state, the WSU Office of Economic Development today is releasing a new economic impact report.

The news is impressive. In the past year, for every $1 the state invested, WSU delivered nearly $19 of economic impact.

And, just this morning, we learned that the bill clearing the way for WSU to establish an independently accredited medical school is on its way to the governor’s office.

Throughout our history, we have aligned our resources to help meet the needs and challenges of our state, our nation and the world.
