A Letter from the President

Why Change? Why Now?

As a public institution, Worcester State University embraces the belief that widespread access to high-quality higher education is the cornerstone of a democratic society. Indeed, it’s what changes lives.

We’re ready. We’ve refined our mission, setting ambitious goals to position WSU as an institution of value, distinction, and an academic destination of choice for students throughout the Commonwealth, across the nation, and abroad.

We’re embarking on a new era of identity. As a university, we commit to scholarship, research, creative endeavors, hands-on learning, global awareness, and interdisciplinary approaches.

As a community, we’re striving to develop and maintain a state-of-the-art, welcoming, and supportive campus that meets discerning student consumers’ expectations. And as a regional educational leader, we seek to uphold our traditions and legacy, while embracing the opportunities inherent in the teaching and learning of the future.

We know we can’t do this alone. We need you — those who believe in Worcester State — to join with us. Your support of this campaign will help students to achieve their dreams, faculty to become exceptional educators, and our programs to grow to meet our community’s evolving needs.

Together, we can change lives.
