Boeing invests $5M to build new student center in WSU’s Voiland College

PULLMAN, Wash. – The Boeing Company is investing $5 million to establish a new student center in the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture at Washington State University’s Pullman campus. 

The Boeing Center for Student Success will occupy an entire floor within the college’s Schweitzer Engineer Hall. It will provide students access to mentoring, tutoring, advising and career services. 

“The impact of this generous commitment from Boeing is incalculable, accelerating the Voiland College’s ambitious plan to modernize its facilities to meet the current and future needs of WSU’s engineering and design students,” said WSU System President Kirk Schulz. “We are grateful for Boeing’s remarkable investment and look forward to the Boeing Center for Student Success having a lasting impact on the academic experience and careers for generations of Voiland College students.”

Boeing’s cumulative investments of nearly $30 million have advanced a variety of academic, research and service initiatives systemwide. The company is the largest corporate sponsor of the university and is also among the leading employers of Voiland College graduates. 

“Washington State University has been a valued Boeing partner for more than 55 years,” said Stan Deal, president and chief executive officer of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “We are excited about WSU’s plans to develop an engineering facility for the 21st century, and are thrilled to contribute to the education of up-and-coming engineers in Washington for many years to come.”
