President's Welcome

Welcome to Washington Adventist University! WAU is a Christ-centered institution of higher education that supports a culture of excellence where all feel valued.  Our vision is to produce graduates who bring moral leadership and competence to their communities. WAU graduates get great jobs and enter top graduate programs.

Our campus has an internationally and culturally diverse population with over 40 countries and nearly every state represented among our students, faculty, staff, and administration. We are next to the country's richest mix of faith, history, and culture, and just moments away from great outdoor pursuits such as hiking, wind surfing, whitewater rafting, and skiing.

Our student/teacher ratio of 13 students for each faculty member means that our students receive the individual attention they deserve.  We develop relationships with faculty and staff members who enjoy leading and aiding in intellectual, spiritual, and personal growth.

Please visit with us and stay for the WAU experience, which you will never get anywhere else.

As our graduates leave WAU, they embark through the “Gateway to Service” as stated in our motto. You too can be a part of this great journey. We look forward to helping you reach your full potential as the Christ-centred individual God intended for you to become!
