In 1997, 19 U.S. governors signed articles of incorporation to create Western Governors University. On Saturday, July 12, U.S. Under Secretary of Education Ted Mitchell said that “pioneering spirit” could be found in the 5,541 graduates who were honored during our 2014 Summer Commencement.
One of the great things about the WGU student body is that it’s made up of 46,000 different stories—46,000 people with 46,000 educational backgrounds, 46,000 learning styles, and 46,000 reasons for choosing WGU as their online university of choice.

Here are the different social media channels we will be utilizing to celebrate our students' success!
