Message from our Chief Academic Officer

Bill Niemi

Welcome to the world’s greatest outdoor learning laboratory! I hope that as you visit our campus and learn more about us on our website that you have the opportunity to experience those things that make Western such a special place—an amazing university in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.

Western’s faculty strive for academic excellence across our campus. They teach more than 100 areas of study between majors, minors, emphases and certificates. And our traditional liberal arts majors all offer career pathways as well as graduate and professional school preparation.

Bill Niemi, Ph.D. |  VP for Academic Affairs
