Message from the V.P.

Welcome back to the quarterly Business and Finance e-newsletter! I hope this issue finds you well. And now that commencement is over, I hope you’re able to take a few minutes to catch up on what’s new in our division.

In the midst of hosting many end-of-the-year events and activities, planning for commencement, and preparing for the many students that will visit our campus for a series of summer camps, our team has managed to stay busy with more than just their daily work activities. Many have received recognition for professional accomplishments and others have been involved in community events that not only bring visibility to EWU, but also positively impact the people who make up our community. Recently, we’ve watched a team member graduate from Leadership Spokane, another complete a Business Management Institute program, a handful present at national conferences, and a number of others play an important role in local non-profit organizations. We’re so proud of all of them that we wanted to share their success with you!

I encourage you to take a few minutes to learn what our outstanding team members have been involved in over the last few months. And when you run into them on campus, be sure to tell them congrats!

We are also excited to report that the development of the university sustainability strategic plan is well underway. Best practice research has been completed, a university-wide inventory was conducted, and we recently finished hosting focus groups to gather input from across the university. While the plan is still being developed, I encourage you to visit the “Unit Spotlight” tab to learn more about this process and hear about a few highlights from the inventory.

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.

Best wishes for a wonderful summer!
