Washington State University encourages students from all backgrounds to pursue higher education. This year, WSU Pullman offers three student led leadership conferences and a Native American Programs leadership conference. Each conference is geared for a particular group of students, but any interested high school junior/senior or prospective transfer student may apply. Participants attend cultural and leadership workshops, and are exposed to different academic fields.
