Board of Trustees

Nathaniel McMillion, Student Trustee


CWU senior Nathaniel McMillion will serve as the Board of Trustees' student representative during the 2020-21 academic year. He was one of five nominees for the position and was appointed by Governor Jay Inslee in June. As the student trustee, Nathaniel will be a full voting member on all issues except matters related to hiring or discipline of personnel, tenure of faculty, and collective bargaining agreements.

A native of Spanaway, who now lives in Kent, McMillion is a senior majoring in public relations and minoring in Africana and Black Studies, who served as CWU’s Black Student Union (BSU) president last year. He has been involved in the university’s Brother 2 Brother chapter and Cross Cultural Leadership Program. McMillion also serves on the public relations team at the Diversity and Equity Center. 

Out of high school, McMillion started a career in banking and sales. He says visiting his older brother, Phillip Bennett, a 2015 CWU alumnus, was a big influence on his decision to attend college.
