Washington State University, a distinguished and comprehensive public research university, seeks an innovative and experienced leader to serve as Chancellor of its Tri-Cities campus, part of the University’s multi-campus, statewide enterprise.
Located in Richland, Wash., along the banks of the Columbia River, WSU Tri-Cities plays a vital role in fulfilling WSU’s mission. More than 70 percent of the 1,800-plus students study STEM-related academic disciplines. The student body is the most diverse among the University’s five campuses, and WSU-Tri Cities recently qualified as a Department of Education Hispanic Serving Institution.
The Ste. Michelle Wine Estates WSU Wine Science Center opened on campus two years ago. The facility represents the thriving partnership between the Pacific Northwest wine industry and WSU. The campus also benefits from its collaboration with nearby Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. WSU Tri-Cities will serve as a clinical campus for the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine based at WSU Spokane that will enroll its inaugural class of medical students in August.
WSU Tri-Cities was established in 1989. The campus offers 20 undergraduate and 33 graduate degrees.
