WSU Vancouver is an inclusive, innovative, non-residential research university dedicated to offering premier undergraduate and graduate educational and research experiences. Situated on 351 scenic acres in southwest Washington state, WSU Vancouver is in the homeland of the Chinookan and Taidnapam peoples and the Cowlitz Indian Tribe.
Part of the Portland, Oregon, metro area, Vancouver offers a wealth of social justice, cultural, and recreational interests, including identity-specific community events, visual and performing arts, professional sports teams, farmers markets, and nature trails. In addition to its celebrated high quality of life, the Pacific Northwest boasts a rich atmosphere for scientific collaboration, with opportunities at numerous medical, environmental, research and teaching institutions throughout the region.
Because graduate students work closely with faculty in pursuing their research, we ask students to identify and connect with a mentor before applying. Explore our Faculty Research pages to find someone whose research interests fit with your own, then contact that person to discuss applying to graduate school at WSU Vancouver. Faculty members are most helpful when they know a little bit about you. When contacting faculty, please provide information about your research background and interests.
WSU Vancouver’s strategic plan includes a commitment to equity; one of its goals in that area is to increase the success of historically minoritized students. WSU Vancouver highly encourages scholars from underrepresented populations to apply and offers fellowship opportunities for students who identify as Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian, Native American, Asian, Pacific Islander and women in STEM.
Recognized by Insight Into Diversity Magazine as a top college for diversity, WSU Vancouver commits to inclusive excellence by advancing equity and diversity in all that we do. WSU Vancouver is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and particularly encourages applications from members of historically underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, women, individuals with disabilities, veterans, LGBTQ community members, and individuals who demonstrate the ability to help us achieve our strategic goal of creating an equitable and inclusive community. The state of Washington prohibits discrimination in employment based on race, color, National Origin, sex, creed, disability, age, marital status, sexual orientation, and honorably discharged veterans or military status.
