Central Washington University, or CWU, is a publicly assisted university in Ellensburg, Washington in the United States. The university's three chief divisions include the Office of the President, Business and Financial Affairs, and Academic and Student Life (ASL). Within ASL are four colleges: the College of Arts and Humanities, the College of Business, the College of Education and Professional Studies, and College of the Sciences.

Another key division within ASL is the Department of Student Success, which provides programs, events, services and activities that promote academic, personal and professional growth within and beyond the classroom. The Dean of Student Success is committed to developing and enhancing the university’s commitment to diversity and inclusiveness; creating connections between in- and out-of-classroom experiences; facilitating scholarly, creative, and professional-development opportunities; providing resources and services to help students navigate the CWU Community; and promoting student rights and responsibilities.

CWU is located about 110 miles (180 km) east of Seattle, Washington on Interstate 90 in Kittitas Valley. To the north the Stuart Mountain range towers over the valley. The Yakima River Canyon lies to the south and the Columbia River to the east. Snoqualmie Pass and Mission Ridge are close by and offer winter sporting opportunities. The historic town of Ellensburg is just 3 blocks from the university campus.
