Office of the President

Meet the Acting President

I am excited to serve as WIU's acting president and to move the University forward. It is an honor to be selected to begin leading the institution. Western is poised for outstanding progress through such initiatives as a new Science Building, the Center for Performing Arts and enhanced academic programs to better serve students. Our students, faculty and staff, and this University as a whole, achieve incredible successes, including prestigious Goldwater and Fulbright scholarships, national awards in such programs as broadcasting, theatre, agriculture and biology, along with national recognition for student service-related programs like residence life, competitive research grants and the list goes on. This is an exciting time to begin the next chapter in Western Illinois University's history.

We will work tirelessly to serve our students and the people of western Illinois, the state and beyond. I especially look forward to meeting University and community members, and turning the page together so we can build this great institution.
