Our two-year campuses are critical higher education access points, particularly for first generation, low income, and under-served students. We have locations across the state where students can earn an associate’s degree, or use those two years of general education credits to transfer to a four-year UW comprehensive and research university. Students at two-year campuses now and in the future will be able to transfer their credits to all UW institutions.
The addition of branch campus faculty to the four-year institutions will bring more disciplinary expertise to academic departments by enhancing the current offerings, expanding research collaborations across the institutions, and giving students greater access to more faculty and staff members for career guidance, advising, and undergraduate research opportunities.
Students at branch campuses will have the opportunity to engage with faculty who teach in upper division courses as four-year degree programs are offered at branch campuses in the future.
Through the addition of branch campuses, institutions will expand access to more diverse populations. In turn, students at the four-year institutions will have more opportunities to engage in community-based learning or internships in locations beyond their main campus.
