Western Oregon University is proud to welcome Dr. Rex Fuller as our newest president. Dr. Fuller comes to Oregon from Eastern Washington University, where he served as provost and vice president for academic affairs.

Dr. Rex Fuller, an economist and professor of public administration, served as provost and vice president for academic affairs at Eastern Washington University (EWU) from 2011-2015. As the university's chief academic officer, he was responsible for EWU's academic programming in Cheney and Spokane, Washington, as well as at additional locations throughout the state.

As provost, Fuller developed a new EWU college of health science and public health and a new master's program in public health. He was instrumental in developing bargaining strategies for faculty contracts; creating innovative student success programs and a university center for community engagement; and facilitating dual-admission programs with area community colleges.

Prior to his service as provost, Fuller served as dean of EWU's College of Business and Public Administration and executive dean of EWU-Spokane, a shared campus with Washington State University. Before joining EWU, Fuller served as dean of business schools at Colorado State University and University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Utah and completed the Institute for Education Management program at Harvard.

Dr. Fuller and his wife, Susan, live in Monmouth and look forward to getting involved with the local communities.   (Above photo: Dr. Fuller and his wife, Susan)
