Since the establishment of the first CWU University Center, the University Centers have been pinched by competition from neighboring branch campuses, online programs and community colleges. In an effort to provide baccalaureate programs the state has: • created six, urban-area branch campuses associated with the state’s research institutions; branch campuses offer full bachelor’s and master’s degrees programs; • authorized community colleges to offer baccalaureate degrees and Bachelor of Applied Science degrees; • authorized dozens of out-of-state institutions to offer degrees in Washington; and • launched Western Governors University-Washington, offering competency-based degree programs. At CWU, University Center program offerings are controlled by individual academic colleges—which, generally are not specifically funded for satellite programming. The result is that University Centers/sites lack a cohesive strategy for responding to program demand and a corresponding strategy and budget for marketing. University Centers do help generate transfer enrollment, currently accounting for 23% of CWU’s 10,006 undergraduate students. In AY20-21 total fall transfers were 3,985, of which 2,310 came from partner community colleges. About 40% of CWU’s undergraduates are transfer students. The overall tuition contribution for host college transfer students has been approximately $14 million each year. This • Felicia Johnson • Lindsay Smith • Makinzie Packwood • Wendell Jopson
