Message from Dr. Kim Kuster Dale, President

Welcome to Western!


Congratulations on making one of the best decisions of your life. Furthering your education will enhance your employability, earning potential, cultural competency and wellbeing. We are excited to have you join our family of Western Mustangs!


Western strives to meet our students where they are at by offering courses in a variety of modes to ensure student access. With over 400 online courses per semester, students can plug into their education at various times of the day. Those students who prefer a face-to-face learning environment will find hundreds of options, and our state-of-the-art labs ensure hands-on experiences to prepare our students for research and careers.


Our knowledgeable and caring faculty and staff are here to support you along the way. Unsure of your career path?  Western has proven tools to help you decide. Questions about navigating college life or class schedules? Our advisors, housing and student life professionals are here to help. Want an internship or apprenticeship opportunity? Our faculty are extremely plugged into our communities and surrounding areas to help you connect to real-world learning.


Getting and staying involved is critical for our new students. Western has many clubs and organizations to connect students to one another. Watch for information on the many social events that are planned to keep students engaged, curious and confident.


On behalf of the entire Western Mustang family, we are proud to serve and support you on your journey to improve your mind, body and spirit. You made a great choice, and we look forward to seeing you on campus and soon cross that stage with your Western credential in hand!
