Dear WWU Community, 

I’m writing to share that we have reached a resolution with the WWU Divest Apartheid Coalition. I look forward to sharing the final agreement with you on Friday. 

As part of this agreement, students involved with the encampment on Old Main lawn agreed to voluntarily end the encampment and depart by 5 p.m. tomorrow. We will continue to offer university support to ensure a safe environment for our entire campus community.

My sincere gratitude goes to the many staff and faculty who have supported our campus community through this process, and a special thank you to the staff and students who committed many hours to our negotiations. 

Kind regards,
