Bear Center Update
Last fall, Washington State University (WSU) leadership was made aware of concerns regarding the operation of our Bear, Research, Education, and Conservation Center.
In response, the WSU Office of Research, in consultation with the Acting Dean of the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences, initiated a review of both the operation of the bear center and the health and well-being of our bears. As a result of that preliminary review, the Office of the Provost launched a formal investigation into the matter, which was initiated in February 2016. The Provost Report of that investigation can be found here.
