Eastern Washington University’s Department of Government Relations’ goal is to promote the campus community’s mission, interests and needs. EWU Government Relations identifies, coordinates and advances the university’s interests to elected officials both in Olympia and the nation’s capital.
David Buri, a former member of the Washington State House of Representatives (9th district), knows the importance of building relationships with elected officials and their dedicated, hard-working staffs. He and President Cullinan collaborate with all of Washington’s public baccalaureate institutions to present a unified and focused voice for higher education to the Washington State legislature.
David works alongside President Cullinan to advocate for EWU’s legislative priorities.
