"The new mission of WSU should focus its efforts on meeting the needs of the metropolitan area, with special attention devoted to the high percentage of non-traditional and minority students who require special support. Its educational emphases will be developed in certain applied areas to aid and support local social, cultural, and economic development needs. These programs will be targeted to respond to business and industry and specific student needs in the state's most highly populated area. Thus, the seven doctoral programs in place will be joined by programs in computer science, educational administration, and psychology in due course and as resources, faculty and curricula can be developed. Through these advanced programs, WSU will emphasize applied research to address the issues confronting industry, community and schools within its service area. WSU's service activities will be spearheaded by its research centers and institutes."
