Abstract

In 1969 The Council for Post-Secondary Education (CPE) was created by the state legislature to respond to the need for “non-traditional” and “place bound” students. The result was a comprehensive six-year plan that addressed the following: 1. Responsiveness to all adult educational needs including those seeking non-traditional opportunities. 2. Access for all beyond high school age who desire it and can benefit. 3. Diversity through a variety of institutions and program options, including off-campus programs. 4. Coordination among all delivery systems of education. · 1974 Pierce Center opens creating a partnership with Pierce College at Fort Steilacoom. · 1975 Lynnwood Center opens creating a partnership with Edmonds Community College. · 1977 Des Moines/SeaTac Center opens creating a partnership with Highline community College and in 2005 CWU Des Moines relocates to the Highline College campus. The University Centers continue to offer upper division and graduated courses leading students to baccalaureate and master’s degrees. In 2018 the Centers again expanded to the City of Sammamish, creating a fantastic learning site to serve the people of Sammamish and surrounding areas.
