Dear Huxley Colleagues,
Please refer to this website regularly for COVID-19 updates. You will find important information such as the Huxley College COVID-19 Response Plan. It tiers off the university plan and university communications, and captures and describes the efforts we’re taking at our local college/department/unit levels. It’s a work in progress that will be updated on a regular basis.

Since 1969, WWU’s Huxley College of the Environment has enjoyed a reputation as a premier institution for the education of future environmental experts and leaders. Our distinctive, interdisciplinary curriculum grants degrees from the Department of Environmental Studies (B.A., B.A.E., M.A., M.Ed.) and the Department of Environmental Sciences (B.S., M.S.). Each department offers multiple majors, from urban planning and environmental policy to estuarine science and terrestrial ecology..
