A nationwide search for the position of Associate Vice President/Director of Intercollegiate Athletics at EWU has resulted in two finalists under consideration.
Both candidates — Jim Sarrá, Jr., Ed.D. and Tim Collins —participated in on-campus interviews and community forums. A third candidate, Elizabeth Jarnigan, withdrew her application upon receiving a job opportunity at another institution.
Members of the campus and broader community were invited to provide feedback to the president for consideration.
Provost Anderson thanks members of the search committee and all who have participated in this important process.
An announcement about the AD selection is expected to be made in the near future.
In the meantime, President McMahan has appointed Mark Baldwin as “Administrator in Charge for the Athletic Department” to ensure leadership continuity after Lynn Hickey’s one-month contract extension expired May 31.
As the administrator in charge, Baldwin will primarily be responsible for financial oversight and personnel management.
