Unique position combines chancellor, vice provost

Washington State University is searching for an innovative leader who will be chancellor for its Spokane campus and who also will coordinate activities across the university system as vice provost for health science.

“Representatives from the Pullman campus, WSU Spokane, WSU Vancouver and the Spokane community serving on the search committee encourage nominations and applications for this important position,” said Mary Doyle, WSU vice president for information systems and chair of the search committee. “The successful candidate will possess strong leadership and communication skills and will play a major role in the future of WSU Spokane.”

Upper division and graduate academic programs located at the Spokane Riverpoint campus include a variety of design, engineering, social science and health science offerings. The College of Nursing is also located in Spokane in its own facility. WSU Spokane has a growing research base and a strong collaborative relationship with researchers across the system.

Because of the thriving health services community, Spokane was identified as the location for the new position of vice provost for health science. Ongoing cooperation continues between university health science research interests and the community.
