This is an exciting time at Western Kentucky University as we become a leading American university with international reach. We are undergoing a physical, intellectual, cultural, attitudinal, academic, social and economic transformation toward becoming a nationally prominent university. As a result, WKU has become a university of choice for many students, faculty and staff. WKU possesses programs of national prominence in journalism and broadcasting, engineering, and forensics. Our alumni express a high level of satisfaction with the overall quality of their education and members of the Western Family share a spirit that is unique among institutions in American higher education.
