Eagle Attributes

These characteristics define what it means to be an Eastern Eagle.


At Eastern Washington University, we believe building strength in multiple dimensions of our lives helps create a foundation of excellence from which to learn, grow, excel, and achieve. We empower our first-year students to boldly embrace opportunities that develop their resiliency, inspire creative exploration, stretch their capacity for ambiguity and change, and nurture well-being. Strengthening ourselves as individuals helps strengthen our collective Eagle community.

We believe the foundation to intellectual growth is rooted in the proactive development of one's ability to problem solve, think critically, and be culturally competent. By consciously taking on the role of an engaged learner, we strengthen our sense of self and purpose, which helps further our academic and co-curricular pursuits.
