Message from the Chancellor
It's an honor to serve as the new chancellor at WSU Spokane on the downtown health sciences campus. This is a place that I believe will have a profound impact on the economic and physical health of the Northwest as we move deeper into the 21st century.
It's also an honor to be back full-time in higher education after serving more than 20 years as a state representative and senator representing Spokane in the Washington legislature.
During my final term in Olympia, I worked with WSU to secure the money we needed to build the new Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences Building that will house our College of Pharmacy and medical sciences program. That state-of-the art facility will allow us to continue to attract high-level researchers in areas such as neuroscience, addictions, clinical pharmacology and medication safety.
I pledge that we will continue to work with our health care partners in higher education and in the community to turn what we learn in our labs and classrooms into products and practices they can use to benefit their patients.
As a politician, I worked to find 'win-win' solutions to difficult problems. I will take that same approach as we continue to build WSU Spokane as a health sciences university.Lisa J. Brown
