Celebrating Success, Aspiring to New Heights

Bryan Hall Auditorium

Q&A and reception (Pullman campus) follow address


Please join President Kirk Schulz and the WSU community statewide for the president’s annual State of the University address.

The address is one of the kickoff events of WSU’s 2018 Showcase activities—the annual celebration of the excellence of the University’s faculty, staff, and students.

The past year has been marked by remarkable achievements across the University’s statewide enterprise. From record-breaking enrollment to major steps forward in advancing health care, from unparalleled success in the athletic arena to WSU’s growing presence in the Puget Sound area, there is much to celebrate.

President Schulz will highlight examples of notable progress from the past 12 months and point out how those successes set the stage for the University to become one of the nation’s top 25 public research universities and an increasingly important resource for ensuring the future vitality of the state of Washington.

A Greg Yasinitsky quartet will perform beginning at 2:45 p.m. A reception in the Bryan Hall foyer featuring individuals who have been involved in some of the University’s recent top accomplishments follows the address.

The address will be livestreamed on YouTube and be available for group viewing at WSU Spokane, WSU Tri-Cities, , WSU Vancouver, and the WSU Downtown Seattle office.
