Inaugural Nursing Cohort is Ready to Learn

An enthusiastic crowd of students, faculty and staff gathered at Spokane’s newly restored, turn-of-the century SIERR building to celebrate the new home of EWU’s Nursing and Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSMD) programs.

The SIERR Sneak Peak event, held on Aug. 22, gave visitors a chance to enjoy complementary ice cream while touring EWU’s main-level Nursing Program suite, which includes simulation labs, offices and classrooms, and the upper-level classrooms for the long-running CMSD program.

Located on the eastern end of the University District, the building is part of a health sciences hub developed by McKinstry Co.

Making History

While the end to Eastern’s greater ambitions came too soon — a heartbreaking final-second loss in the 2023 Big Sky Basketball Championship tournament — EWU’s men’s basketball team walked off the court in Boise knowing they’d already cemented a season for the history books.  

Head coach David Riley’s squad, a group just a year removed from a big rebuild, came into the season with three returning starters, a core of experienced role players and high expectations. In preseason polling, however, coaches and sportswriters expressed their doubts, with both groups picking Eastern to finish no higher than fifth.

The Eagles answered the doubters with a remarkable regular season that included a Big Sky record 16-0 start to conference play. That streak, part of a record-tying 18-game stretch of victories, earned them the regular season Big Sky Championship.

Hoopfest 2023

Eastern Washington University once again amped up festivities at Spokane Hoopfest by serving as the official diversity, equity and inclusion sponsor – and showing plenty of Eagle spirit throughout the weekend.

Thanks to a partnership with MultiCare, EWU sponsored yet another successful wheelchair basketball exhibition. EWU’s team members did a great job of engaging basketball enthusiasts in this adaptive sport.

This event, held June 24-25, also introduced Tim Collins, EWU’s new athletics director, to the Spokane basketball community. Collins was among the initial exhibition participants on a team that included representatives from MultiCare, Amazon and Guardian Insurance, as well as EWU women’s and men’s basketball student athletes.

Prairie Restoration

EWU’s Prairie Restoration Project will restore a 120-acre parcel of university-owned land to its native habitat, thus creating a “living laboratory” of restored Palouse prairie proximate to the Cheney campus. Together with the Spokane and other local tribes — Native peoples who for millennia called these bounteous hills home — we will connect with the land and learn from it.
