Located in Seattle, WA, the Office of Economic Development & External Affairs works to connect WSU with the Puget Sound and businesses across the state. Key areas of focus include driving visibility for WSU research innovations, participating in expert panels and advisory boards, and connecting to industry leaders in relevant fields of research.
We also aim to help students through our office’s participation in workforce initiatives, currently in the aerospace and technology sectors, and look to grow student engagement with the agricultural, clean tech, and various areas of manufacturing, in partnership with administration and faculty across all of the WSU Colleges and Urban Campuses.
Working closely with the Center for Advising and Career Development we regularly communicate opportunities for internships and employment back to the student body through CougLink.
