Office of the President ESU Insider

Welcome to the ESU Insider

The fall semester is in full swing, and as we look forward into an exciting future full of activities, new academic programs, new facilities and more, Emporia State is filled with excitement and anticipation for what’s to come.

As you may know, my time at ESU has come to an end. During the past five and a half years, I have been honored to serve Emporia State and propel this great institution forward. I leave campus in the capable hands of our Provost, Dr. George Arasimowicz, who will serve as acting president beginning October 16.

Dr. Arasimowicz has been able to accomplish a lot in his short time with Emporia State University, joining us in April of 2021. ESU has great momentum and is poised to attract excellent candidates to serve as the next president.

We are excited about what the future holds for everyone in Hornet Nation.
