Western is located in beautiful Bellingham, a scenic coastal city of approximately 80,000 situated between Seattle, Washington and Vancouver, British Columbia. With easy access to both the Cascade mountain range and the Pacific coast, the region is rich in cultural events and attractions as well as many recreational activities. Western is known nationally for its successes, including being named the top public master’s granting university in the Pacific Northwest by U. S.

A message from the President of Western Washington University, Sabah Randhawa:
Western is committed to providing a welcoming, equitable and inclusive campus community for all students, faculty, and staff, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, age, veteran status, and financial background. These dimensions of diversity deeply enrich our educational environments and strengthen our ability to reflect and serve increasingly diverse local and global communities. At the same time, Western is committed to providing an intellectual atmosphere in which diverse perspectives and viewpoints are welcome, critically examined, and engaged with civility and respect.
While Western has made meaningful progress in equity and inclusion, we continue striving to deliver on those commitments for everyone who is a part of Western today and in the future. Advancing and embracing diversity is not only an integral part of Western’s mission, it is critical to preparing our graduates to succeed in an increasingly diverse and interconnected world.
