From EWU Provost Jonathan Anderson:
Dear Eastern community members,
It is with deep sadness that I inform you of the passing of John Neace, director of Interdisciplinary Studies. John started at Eastern more than 20 years ago, and with his help, many students found a way to graduate and become strong alumni and community members.
John was a consummate professional and an even better human being. He was implicitly trusted and loved by many on our campus. Our hearts go out to his loved ones and friends.
If you or someone you know is impacted or may be experiencing feelings of anxiety or grief, help is available:
- Students: Contact Student Life/Dean of Students at 509-359-7924 or Counseling and Psychological Services at 509-359-2366.
- Faculty/Staff: Contact Human Resources at 509-359-2381 or the Employee Assistance Program at 877-313-4455.
Take care of yourself and of each other.
(Editor’s Note: We will share information about a memorial service as details are made available.)
