About the role

The president has overall strategic and operational responsibility for the UWSA’s employees, its programs and services, and the execution of its mission and strategic plan.

The complete term is a three-year commitment with three distinct roles:

  1. In the first year, the president-elect continues in their regular campus role while also working closely with the president, who helps prepare them to step into the role of president. This preparation may include recommending training to bridge any gaps in knowledge, skills, or abilities.
  2. In the second year, the president position is a full-time one-year secondment to the UWSA during which the president receives their regular UW salary plus a stipend equivalent to 10% of USG 13.
  3. In the third year, the past president supports the president and provides continuity, while returning to their regular campus role.

The University grants the equivalent of three days each month of release time from regular duties for the president-elect and past president. Some of the benefits of serving in this role include better understanding how the University works, building cross-campus relationships, and developing leadership capacity.
