Heritage University

Heritage University and IWF have formed a strategic partnership in order to leverage our combined resources to stimulate economic development that addresses poverty in Yakima County and builds a vibrant community for youth and families and that facilitates their unique contribution to the future of Yakima, the State of Washington and beyond.

Heritage was born from culturally diverse, agricultural  community of Yakima that includes a long tradition of migration from Mexico and the contribution of the Yakama nation.  Heritage was founded to serve this community faced with cultural, language, and other social barriers and no four year university within 60 miles.  They have created a unique educational product that views and treats multicultural identity as an economic and social asset.
