WWU is Providing High-Value to the state of WA

Stage: Active

Campaign: Ideas

As a WWU graduate, I have stayed in-state and helped build up several businesses, which are paying taxes to support the government and educational system.

The CS department draws in students who are potentially going to stay in-state / in-city to grow the local economy.

Let's keep the doors open so we can attract high-value students to our state.

Mobile application development

Stage: Active

Campaign: Curriculum

Computers are getting smaller, lighter, faster. The average person doesn't need a 'computer'. They need a way to keep in touch with people.

If you run a consumer facing business and you don't have a mobile strategy, you probably won't succeed.

Being able to develop web services that can be leveraged by several platforms is very useful here.

Global Development

Stage: Active

Campaign: Curriculum

Partner with 4 other colleges around the world. 1 member from each college. Teach people how to work from anywhere.

Having this knowledge allows people to either work from where it is cheap to live OR hire people for very cheap compared to the local economy and have them live like kings where they live.
