Walla Walla University leadership team

Walla Walla University is led by the university president, the president’s Cabinet, and the 校董会. The president and vice presidents lead the day-to-day management and direction of the university, and the president receives this authority from the university 校董会.

一年三次, the president and vice presidents meet with the 校董会 to advise that governing body regarding university matters. The 校董会 is responsible for the overall government and welfare of the university, including matters regarding faculty, 工作人员, 学生, 和校友. The board is also responsible for selecting the university president, determining the major goals of the university, and approving university budgets.

As a Seventh-day Adventist university, members of the 校董会 include regional leaders of the Adventist church as well as church members elected to terms of service on the board.

约翰·K. McVay has led the university as president since 2006.
