College Funding Priorities
At Western Washington University and the College of Business and Economics we acknowledge the need for our college and the business community at large to become more diverse, inclusive and effective. BIPOC populations face unique and systemic barriers to succeeding in business. These barriers contribute to an underrepresentation in undergraduate and graduate business programs, and in business focused careers.
We're creating the CBE Students of Color Opportunity Scholarship to support members of BIPOC communities through financial support. This scholarship will be awarded to a College of Business and Economics major or pre-major who is a member of the BIPOC community.
Our initial goal is to raise $25,000 to establish an endowment fund that will support the academic and professional aspirations of BIPOC students. Initial funding has been provided by the CBE Dean’s office to begin this crucial effort.
With this scholarship we can, together, make an impact on the educational goals of BIPOC students at WWU’s College of Business and Economics for years to come. Please join us in this vision by making a donation today! Thank you.

Management Information Systems
The Management Information Systems (MIS) program at Western Washington University (WWU) is thriving. To prepare our students for their careers, our program provides a solid foundation of concepts and skills, combined with hands-on assignments and projects. The classwork is supplemented with extracurricular opportunities to promote "professional readiness." The job placement for our MIS students has been outstanding.
- We rely on donations to provide extracurricular activities to enhance the professional development of our MIS students. Your support will be especially important during the upcoming year as funding will be a challenge for many of our students.
- Examples of activities during the past year include a MIS alumni panel, an interactive panel focusing on internships, visits with industry leaders, and engagement with industry organizations.
