Student Involvement

Michael Middleton named Student Engagement Coordinator

Following a national search, Michael Middleton has been named CWU’s new Student Engagement Coordinator, a post he will begin September 4. A graduate of the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA, with a student affairs background in campus recreation and student involvement, Middleton looks forward to helping support Wildcats as they begin and continue their personal journeys.

“The college experience itself was an extremely transformative time in my life,” he said. “The biggest thing that drew me to Central was the strong sense of community. It is abundantly apparent that the Wildcat community is passionate about what they do, and that is very important to me.”

Jeff Rosenberry, executive director of Student Involvement, looks forward to welcoming Middleton to CWU and believes his passion and skills will help pave the way for enhanced student service.

“Michael brings significant experience in student development,” Rosenberry said. “He will be a great addition to our team as we continue to improve our connection with students, clubs and organizations.”

As the Student Engagement Coordinator, Middleton will support ASCWU Clubs and Organizations by facilitating training and development opportunities for club officers and advisors, assisting with university processes such as travel and contracts, and more.

Middleton’s academic background is in the sciences, and he would like to pursue a Ph.D in Cognitive Neuroscience. He also enjoys creative outlets such as dance, photography, videography and music. Having lived up and down the east coast his whole life thus far, he looks forward to exploring his new home in the Pacific Northwest.

“I'm a big lover of nature and have spent a good amount of time exploring the mountains of Virginia so I was immediately captivated by the landscapes of Ellensburg and the surrounding areas,” he said.
