Washington State University Tri-Cities has named an interim director of student affairs after the current director resigned.
Carol Wilkerson will take over the position May 1. She joined WSU Tri-Cities last fall to help the campus earn the federal designation of Hispanic Serving Institution.
Wilkerson holds a doctorate in foreign language education and is fluent in Spanish. Her previous positions include campus dean, academic dean, chair of the foreign languages department and interim associate vice president of civic engagement and service learning.
The director of student affairs oversees such programs as admissions, recruitment, financial aid, undergraduate advising and veterans affairs.
Jaime Contreras, who previously held the position, resigned effective April 30. He joined WSU Tri-Cities in June 2008.
