Welcome to the 2021-2022 University Theme!

The Future of Learning, our 2021-2022 university theme, focuses our thoughts, conversation, and action on the changing needs of our community of learners as we navigate a future filled with disruption and transformation. Ten years from now, who will be learning at WSU, how will we learn, and what environments and tools will support our learning? Join us as we examine our current learning organization and practices and prepare ourselves for the future of learning. Learn more about the theme, peruse the materials in the reading room, and offer suggestions for events and activities. Get started by participating in our Future of Learning Week kickoff activities this week!
