EWU President’s Community Farewell

Eastern Washington University is inviting the greater Cheney and Spokane communities to celebrate the many contributions of Dr. Rodolfo Arévalo, EWUs 25th president, as he embarks on a new chapter of his life. Arévalo has announced he will retire effective July 15, 2014, after an eight-year tenure that brought the university to new heights in academic success, facility enhancement and athletic profile. He also successfully guided the university through the state of Washington’s budget crisis while overseeing enrollment growth that has set new records each of the past four years. In lieu of any gifts, visitors are asked to please consider a donation to Eastern’s Hispanic Legacy Scholarship Endowment Fund.
