Message from the V.P.

Mary Voves

It’s hard to believe the first quarter of a new academic year has nearly come and gone. People often say, “time flies when you’re having fun.” But, I also think time flies when you’re working with people who inspire you to do good work.

Mark Sanborn’s presentation at the Celebration Conference in September got me thinking. The Business and Finance team is full of “Freds.” We have people on this team who “continually create new value for those they live and work with through dedication, passion and creativity.” They consciously make an effort to be extraordinary leaders to ensure EWU sees extraordinary results. As Mr. Sanborn noted, they make a difference, build relationships, continually create value for others, and reinvent themselves regularly. They are the people who make “time fly.”

This month we are highlighting a few of the “Freds” in Business and Finance that have played an important role in kicking this new academic year off with a bang. Of course, these are not the only “Freds” we have on our team. And the “Freds” we have at EWU are not confined to just the Business and Finance division.

As we continue to move through this year together, I encourage you to find ways to live out the Fred Factor mission. Together, let’s be a team that creates value for those we work and live with – not just in this division, but across the university.

I also encourage you to take a few minutes to read about what’s been happening in Business and Finance. And as always, please also feel free to share your thoughts with us about how we’re doing or what you’d like to hear more about under the “contact” tab.

All the best,
