President Glandon on Inclusive Excellence



I write to you thankful to be part of a special community here at College of Western Idaho. Coming to work at CWI everyday provides me with great energy and optimism about what the future holds for us.

We have the unique benefit of being part of a higher education community that embraces respectful dialogue on our differences. We don’t subscribe to an idea that there is only one way to view the world. Instead, we challenge each other to explore perspectives and make decisions based on education and insight.

My optimism about how we will create a better future lies in the hands of our dedicated faculty and staff, and bright students. I hope that CWI continues to be a breeding ground for productive, respectful, and thoughtful conversation. After all, I believe a college campus should model both civility and hope for the rest of the world.

I am proud to work with colleagues who care so greatly about the success of our students. I am even prouder to be surrounded by so many hard working students, committed to improving your lives through higher education. I truly believe the people on this campus are leaders preparing to change lives here in the Treasure Valley, in our great country, and around the world. Thank you for continuing to inspire me and give me unwavering hope in a bright tomorrow.

Yours Truly,

Bert Glandon
CWI President
