"Keith Moo-Young has an entrepreneurial spirit that complements the vision for WSU Tri-Cities. He will use a creative approach to grow the campus,” said Elson S. Floyd, president of Washington State University. "He has experience building community and business partnerships — which are vital to WSU Tri-Cities — and he expressed a vision for the campus that will strengthen its role within WSU and in the state’s economy.”
Moo-Young was one of three candidates invited to WSU Tri-Cities to meet with members of the campus community and the community at large. He will receive an annual salary of $300,000.
"Keith is a great fit for the campus and community,” said interim chancellor James R. Pratt. "He is a creative and productive leader who will bring considerable skill to the leadership of the campus.”
