PURE Insights is supported by the PURE Executive Committee.
The PURE Executive Committee meets monthly during the academic year to support the mission of the program. Executive members are approved by a majority vote and serve a three-year period with the option to request service for a second three-year term. The committee sets strategic directions and program priorities for PURE; reviews and analyzes progress; modifies annual plans, as necessary; and works together to coordinate and present WOU's annual Academic Excellence Showcase each spring.
