Be Safe Cougs

Learn about the WSU Community Standards Process

We are all accountable for maintaining a safe, healthy, and inclusive campus. We contribute to a community which encourages and educates everyone to make positive choices and share messages of our values. Occasionally students make choices that put those values at risk. The community standards process is designed to support those students, uphold their rights and responsibilities, and hold them accountable for behaviors that conflict with our community standards. More information about the Standards of Conduct, and the community standards process.

Win a Free Lunch!

The two units with the highest percentage of their personnel completing the required VCEA safety training by Sept 13 will win a free lunch.
