Contract Approved

The EWU Board of Trustees (BOT) has approved a five-year contract for Shari McMahan, PhD, who is now set to serve as the 27th president of Eastern Washington University. The ratification comes three weeks after the Board unanimously selected McMahan to lead the institution.

McMahan, who is currently the provost and vice president for academic affairs at California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB), will begin her appointment at Eastern on June 24, 2022. Her contract is set to run through June 30, 2027. As part of the agreement, McMahan will live in the University House on campus so she can immerse herself into the Eastern community.
