Center for Economic and Business Research  ♦  360-650-3909

The Center for Economic and Business Research at Western Washington University works in partnership with businesses, non-profits, government/quasi-governmental entities and tribal communities to respond to data and analysis needs. 

The Center brings students and faculty together with each client to find solutions that inform, engage and encourage innovation.  Our work ranges from answering specific questions to creating the information platform that drives productive discussions. 

Our work includes a variety of analysis documents, presentations and facilitated discussions backed by both primary and secondary research that is supported by academic standards and best practices.

We can help you! We have a deep commitment to providing a value to not only our students but also the region and the state.  We develop and provide coordinated and packaged research, analysis and educational services.

Business is complicated – we are not.  You tell us your needs and we design a response strategy with you that works for you.  You don't have to worry about knowing the areas of research interest for faculty or what department might have students who can help - we'll connect the university to you and help you find what you need. Whether faculty for workshops, training and research or students for consulting and internships. 

CEBR is a member of the Association for University Business and Economic Research and the University Economic Development Association.
