Why Independent Colleges of Washington Matter
Independent Colleges of Washington member campuses play a critical role in the state’s higher education ecosystem, cultivating talent, championing diversity, and making it possible for more Washington residents to find their best fit here at home. With a commitment to educating the whole person, we are delivering value for our alumni and for our communities. Together, we are serving Washington, and with state and private support, we have the capacity to assist thousands of additional Washington residents in completing degrees.
As employers, we are powering economies in many corners of the state, creating jobs and connecting students to jobs in their regions. Our member campuses employ more than 8,000, making the collective one of the state’s top 20 private sector employers.
