This academic year marks the 40th anniversary of the Academically Talented Youth Program (ATYP), a program that began with 22 advanced middle school students from seven area school districts and offered them the chance to take part in high school-level math and language arts programs, regardless of their ability to pay.
During the annual celebration of Black History Month, a time to recognize the achievements and important role Black history plays in U.S. and Western history, the University celebrated Bronco alumni who’ve inspired change, pushed boundaries and paved the way for so many.
Wellness at Western
WMU is redefining success as we expand what it means to be "smart" in an ever-changing world. Our goal is to prepare students for a life well-lived by helping them to pursue, thrive and prosper. This holistic approach starts with the skills and abilities you don't see on paper: mental well-being, grit and purpose. That's why Western is launching two new wellness tools to help students explore their strengths and areas for growth.
