Presidential Search

Dear Campus Community:

On behalf of the EWU Board of Trustees, I am pleased to announce that Dr. Mary Cullinan has accepted our offer to be the 26th president at Eastern Washington University.

Dr. Cullinan has served as president of Southern Oregon University (SOU) in Ashland, Oregon, since 2006 and brings 34 years of extensive higher education experience to the Cheney campus.

Dr. Cullinan will begin serving our community on August 1. She will also visit campus prior to her start date to meet with various campus partners. I would like to take this time to thank everyone on campus for their participation and thoughtful input during the presidential selection process.

The Board of Trustees is confident Dr. Cullinan's academic and leadership experience will be a great fit for Eastern. I know we all look forward to partnering with Dr. Cullinan as she learns more about this great university community while advancing our shared mission.


Paul Tanaka
Chair, EWU Board of Trustees
