WSU elected to submit a Lite Assessment Application in October 2008, discussing organizational characteristics and challenges, leadership and strategic planning, customer, market, and workforce focus, information and process management, and performance results. In December 2008, WSU received a feedback report assessing WSU’s strengths and opportunities for improvement.
