26 Days of Kindness




  • In 2008, the Spokane Fire Department partnered with the EWU School of Social Work to create the Community Assistance RESponse Team. The team responds to non-emergency 911 calls placed by families and elderly citizens who lack resources and support.


Civics Conference

  • Each fall quarter since 2010, Eastern Washington University has hosted approximately 150 West Valley students (grades 4-12) to explore civic-themed topics such as "How can I be an informed voter?" Students spend part of the day listening to speakers, then break into topic-focused small groups with EWU faculty and students.


Get Lit! Program

  • The Get Lit! Program seeks to engage community members in celebrating the written word through educational outreach and an annual literary festival. The nationally recognized festival began in 1998, and has hosted authors such as Kurt Vonnegut, Jane Smiley, Richard Russo, Salman Rushdie, Rita Dove, and Sherman Alexie.



First Robotics and Lego Competitions

  • Eastern has conducted several annual FIRST LEGO League (FLL) competitions over the past three years with its focus on fourth through eighth grade participants. The regional Robotics event provides a bigger stage, a bigger challenge and focuses on high school team participation with more than 1,500 people visiting the Eastern campus each day of the event.


Student Research and Creative Works Symposium

  • The Student Research and Creative Works Symposium is a two-day annual event where students from disciplines across campus present their research and creative work to the university community and the general public. The Symposium is the largest, campus-wide academic event at EWU!


Washington Science Olympiad at EWU

  • Approximately 800 Washington middle and high school students compete in over 20 topics to learn about science, engineering, lab skills and teamwork.
