    CHENEY, Wash. - Eastern Washington University Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Rex Fuller, has been elected to the inaugural board of directors of the Association of Chief Academic Officers, or ACAO.

    The ACAO is the first national organization representing chief academic officers (CAOs), such as provosts and vice presidents for academic affairs, from all accredited higher education institutions. The organization provides a forum for discussing important academic affairs issues, as well as an environment where CAOs can communicate with, inform and educate one another.

    "It's an exciting opportunity to be part of the inaugural board to design programs that meet the needs of all sectors of higher education," said Fuller. "As a charter member of ACAO, Eastern Washington University gains added visibility within higher education and the American Council of Education."

    Fuller also stated that being on the ACAO will enable EWU to participate in programs designed to improve overall educational quality, and board-level participation enables EWU to be part of the team that designs future programming.

    The American Council on Education (ACE), in its role as a convener for higher education associations, has assisted in the organization's formation. The ACAO held its initial organizational meeting during ACE's 2013 Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. The election of the association's first officers and board of directors and approval of its bylaws took place at the March ACE Annual Meeting in San Diego.
