Eastern Washington University is not the college it was 100 years ago. It’s not the university of 15 years ago. As a public university, EWU has always been responsive, adapting to needs in our state and our region. However, in the volatile and complex environment of the 21st century, EWU must also ignite change. Not simply responding to upheavals and disruptions in our environment, we must increasingly be a major change agent ourselves.
Eastern Washington University’s leaders aren’t standing idly by while Spokane becomes a hub for innovation and a magnet for employers.

Kassidy worried she would have to drop out of EWU because of family illness and dwindling financial resources. A scholarship offered her renewed opportunity. “I can’t express enough gratitude for this scholarship,” she said. “I hope to pay it forward when I reach my goal of becoming a nurse.” Makenzie was a high school valedictorian. A 4.0 student, she had planned on going to college since she was 8 years old. She saved her money and worked several jobs. Unfortunately, her family situation was challenging. “I had no one to show me a good pathway. As high school was approaching, I took a look at my life. I knew I had to become resilient in order to become successful. I started taking charge, pushing myself to pay attention in school and forcing myself to get involved.” Focused on math and science, Makenzie is able to thrive at EWU through grants and a Presidential Scholarship.

Even at $240,000 a year, Beau Baldwin is one of the biggest bargains in college football. Baldwin’s 85-32 record is seventh best in the history of the Big Sky Conference. He’s also won five conference titles (while going 58-14), an FCS national championship in 2010 and taken the Eagles on several deep runs in the postseason.

Rodolfo Arevalo’s duties as Eastern Washington University president end today, and as he hands off the job to incoming President Mary Cullinan, he’s confident the university will continue to thrive. Friday marks the first day of Cullinan’s presidency, although Arevalo plans on staying nearby for another month to provide assistance to the incoming president and to introduce her to community leaders.
Mary Cullinan is on her way to making history. She has been named the next president of Eastern Washington University, the Cheney school’s 26th president. She is the first woman hired for EWU’s top post and the only woman to hold a presidency among the state’s major public universities.
Two of the three finalists to lead Eastern Washington University received no-confidence votes from faculty in their current jobs as university presidents. The three candidates in the running to replace retiring President Rodolfo Arévalo are on campus this week and next. The EWU board plans to select a new president by July.
