    The College is guided by its stated mission and sustained by its vision:

    The College of Business and Public Administration (CBPA) is a unit of Eastern Washington University (EWU), a regional comprehensive public university located in Cheney and Spokane, WA, with programs offered throughout the state and online.


    The CBPA exists to develop students who think critically, act ethically, and contribute to evolving public and private sector environments.

    This mission is accomplished by:

    Our motto is "Focusing on the region - open to the world."


    The College's vision is to have its programs in business, economics, public administration and planning recognized for their excellence and to be the college of first choice in the region educating public, private and non-profit leaders.


    In contrast, our college values are considerably more detailed:


    1. Provide a learning environment that supports and encourages students to engage in life-long learning.
    2. Provide an atmosphere that fosters academic excellence and supports faculty and staff development.
    3. Offer programs in the Greater Spokane region, across the state and online that serve the educational needs of current and future students.
    4. Increase resources to support the mission of the College.
    5. Expand outreach activities that promote sustainable economic and community development.
