The Eastern Washington University Board of Trustees includes a student trustee who serves a one-year term. Like the other trustees, our student trustee applies for the position, goes through an interview process, and is appointed by the governor.
On July 1, we welcome Abigail Greiner, our student trustee for academic year 2020-2021. Abigail is a senior who will graduate in 2021 with a bachelor’s in arts and education focused on English education for secondary students, along with an endorsement in special education.
During her three years at Eastern, Abigail has been active with many student organizations. As a board member, she is committed to empower the student voice, learn more about students’ Eastern experiences, and support the things that students most want and need.
On June 30, we say good-bye to Mia Hyde, Eastern’s student trustee during this past academic year. Mia is working towards a bachelor’s degree in applied developmental psychology with a minor in addiction counseling and prevention. She has been an outstanding board member, listening to and advocating for students. We will miss her—and we wish her the best in her time at Eastern and beyond.
I am so proud and appreciative of students who step into leadership positions. The student trustees’ hard work, thoughtfulness, and understanding of the student experience bring important insight and perspective to our Board and to all of Eastern.
Mary Cullinan, President
Eastern Washington University
