Shari McMahan is the provost and vice president for academic affairs at Cal State University-San Bernardino. She visited EWU’s Cheney and Spokane campuses during her visit on February 4.

Shari McMahan: (introducing herself to the Eastern community) “I’m a first-generation college student, like many of our students and, in fact, I serve a college campus with over 80% first-generation students, so I feel the concerns that they have and the support that they need to be successful.”
