We value art as a catalyst for learning, personal growth, and meaningful connection. We actively engage students, scholars, and the public through outreach, programs, and partnerships.

Impact at the Museum infographic


The museum inspires, engages, and educates diverse audiences through the power of art.


We aspire to be a vibrant and inclusive learning environment that positions art as an integral part of society to expand dialogue, cultural understanding, and social change.

The arts are essential to creating interdisciplinary connections and making all of us better, more critically observant individuals. The new Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU–placed in the heart of the Pullman campus–symbolizes the treasured role of the arts and our commitment to offering our students a transformative educational experience.
