H. Keith Moo-Young will be the next chancellor of Washington State University Tri-Cities.

President Elson S. Floyd announced the decision today. He and other university officials met with and conducted final interviews with Moo-Young, dean of engineering at California State University-Los Angeles, on Friday.

The third candidate to visit the campus in north Richland, Moo-Young will be paid $300,000 a year in his new post according to his contract. He will start June 1.

“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,” Floyd said in a release.
