New Special Projects Dean

Published: October 14, 2015

CHENEY, Washington - Eastern Washington University's Judd Case, PhD, long time dean of what is now the College to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (CSTEM), will spearhead the university's effort to enhance its medical education partnerships in the Spokane area.

Case will utilize his expertise in STEM education to serve as the university's new Dean of Special Projects. The position will focus on EWU's long association with the University of Washington's WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho) Spokane medical program and RIDE (Regional Initiatives in Dental Education) program through the UW School of Dentistry.

"Eastern really needs Judd Case in this role," says Mary Ann Keogh Hoss, interim provost and vice president for Academic Affairs at EWU. "He has an established relationship with these programs and their faculty, and we look forward to him building upon those relationships on behalf of Eastern."

An accomplished biologist, Case came to Eastern in 2006 as the dean of what was then the College of Science, Health and Engineering (now CSTEM). He has been heavily involved with medical education since his arrival.

"I am excited about this new opportunity for EWU," said Case. "It has been helpful that I have not only been an administrator working with these programs, but that I also understand the programs from the bottom up as I am faculty in both the RIDE and the WWAMI programs."

Case points out the university recently negotiated new contracts for EWU science faculty to once again serve as instructors in the WWAMI Spokane program.

"This is a great opportunity for our faculty to be engaged in medical education in the region. We continue to work closely with the RIDE program in Seattle as they look to expand in Spokane as well."

Case will begin his new role Nov. 2 at the EWU Spokane campus in the University District. In addition to her role as interim provost, Keogh Hoss will also serve as interim dean of CSTEM during the transition.
