More than 125 years ago, EWU began as a small teacher-education school called the Benjamin P. Cheney Academy. Now the demand for higher education has expanded to include career preparation in fields like business, the sciences and healthcare as well as training for civic and community leadership and the development of the arts. EWU has risen to the challenge of fulfilling this demand with graduate programs in all of these areas.
