The face and voice of WSU

The President, as Chief Executive Officer, is responsible for the overall management and oversight of the university’s vision, strategy and operations. The President reports directly to the Kansas Board of Regents and works closely with the Board in implementing Board-directed initiatives, programs and policies. The President delegates and monitors administrative and operational functions to an executive leadership team reporting to the President.

The President is not only the leader of the campus community but also the visible representative of WSU in the local community, organizations of higher education, and the touchstone for alumni, parents and friends of the university. The President is, ultimately, the face and voice of WSU and its mission, raising its profile in the community, state and nation to enhance recruitment and continue the strong financial support necessary to sustain it.
