Donna Potts.WSU English professor Donna Potts was selected to serve as chair of the English department in the College of Arts and Sciences.

Potts said she was encouraged to run for the open position because of her commitment to the department.

She said she wants the faculty in the department to have a voice and be able to design their course the way they want to. However, some courses, like English 101, already have a structured curriculum.

“I consider myself an advocate for the faculty. I represent the faculty,” Potts said. “What I’m trying to do is to have a committee of faculty that is advisory, so that it’s not me from top down, reviewing people.”
