Heritage University is a private, nonprofit university governed by an independent Board of Directors, with its administrative offices in Toppenish, Washington. Heritage believes it is vital to the future of our world to reverse the historical underrepresentation in higher education and community leadership of some cultural and socioeconomic groups.
