WSU Pullman inaugurates first chancellor

With the launch of a new academic year, the Washington State University campus in Pullman
welcomes its first chancellor.

Elizabeth Chilton was named the inaugural chancellor of the WSU Pullman campus in fall 2021.
She joined WSU as provost and executive vice president in July 2020. Chilton also began serving in her
new chancellor role in January 2022.

Chilton’s redefined role will capitalize on the expansive scholarship, creative activity and research
happening at WSU’s flagship campus, while preserving and enhancing WSU’s academic enterprise.

WSU faculty, staff and students along with members of the community are invited to attend an
inauguration celebration ceremony Aug. 18 at 4 pm in Bryan Hall Auditorium. A reception will follow
at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU.
