WWU Appoints New Associate VP

Scott Ligman moves to academic administration

By: Becky St. Clair

Ligman has been at WWU for nearly 20 years.

Scott Ligman has been named Associate Vice President for Academic Administration.  This appointment does not begin Ligman’s service at Walla Walla University; he began teaching in the biology department in 1989 and in 1999 became chair of the department. 

“I am delighted to welcome Scott Ligman to this position,” says Ginger Ketting-Weller, VP for Academic Administration at WWU.  “He will interface with nearly every department on campus for the support and success of students in their academics, a position for which he is well-prepared.”

Ligman received his bachelor of science degree in biology from Andrews University in 1980.  From there he continued his education to receive his masters of science in biology and physiology from Andrews University, and then obtained his doctorate in zoology and neurophysiology from Oregon State University in 1989.

No stranger to hard work, Ligman’s dedication to education shows in the four awards he has received, including the Zapara Award for excellence in teaching in 1991, and the National Academic Advising Association Merit Award in 1993.  Ligman has also been published in nine professional publications.

“It is a privilege and a pleasure to serve the WWU community in this new role,” says Ligman.  “This campus is blessed with an abundance of good people and programs.  I am looking forward to helping us to continue to be more deliberate in what we do, and in communicating the successes of our students, faculty, and staff.”

Ligman will take charge of his new duties this summer.
