Washington State University Tri-Cities is part of the Washington State University System which is composed of several campuses and learning centers throughout the State.  WSU Tri-Cities is a commuter campus with roughly 1200 students (200 of which are in the business program).  Many of WSU Tri-Cities’ students are employed full time, and most classes are held in the late afternoon and evening.  The business faculty on the Tri-Cities campus consists of seven to eight resident faculty (representing five departments) and about 15 adjunct faculty.

The Tri-Cities is located in the Columbia River Basin in southeastern Washington.  Three communities, Richland, Kennewick and Pasco (the Tri-Cities) have a combined population of about 120,000.  The Tri-Cities area is large enough to offer many of the amenities of a big city, but small enough to avoid many of the problems that plague larger communities.  The climate is mild, semi-arid with four distinct seasons.
