The Fact Book is as a single, readily accessible, consistent source of information about the WSU community, resources, and operations. It is a summary of institutional data gathered from many areas.
The Common Data Set initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in higher education and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson's, and U.S. News & World Report. The goals are to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student's transition into higher education and to reduce the reporting burden on data providers.
The Snapshot is produced each fall semester and contains information on strategic indicators for WSU grouped in 6 categories: student profile, finances, faculty-staff profile, academics, student life, and alumni.
By monitoring our first-time, full-time freshman retention and graduation rates, WSU can continuously improve services and processes to help students complete their degrees and prepare for careers.
