Welcome to EWU

Office of the President 

Welcome to a new academic year at Eastern Washington University! Since my arrival at Eastern this summer I have been eagerly awaiting to meet all of our students–new and returning–to campus. The relationships we make at EWU are so special and together, we will forge a new future for Eastern and the communities we serve.

Your faculty will provide you with the curriculum and instruction that meets you where you are, with compassion and flexibility. Student success–your success– remains at the forefront of our work.

With each fall there comes a sense of renewal but this year it is a special moment for our university. It will be my first days as president, and the state has committed to expanding our instructional capacity in both physical space and the expansion of our academic programs. Furthermore, support for Eastern from donors and our community partners has never been better.

I hope you are ready to join me in making this year an exciting inaugural one, packed with achievements in and outside the classroom, growth of character and pride, and continued excellence in our academic programs and on the stages and fields where we perform as Eagles!

Welcome to the beginning of our future together! Welcome to the New Think at Eastern Washington University!
