SBJ ALL IN: Pat Chun

Washington State Athletics

Pat Chun

Athletic Director, Washington State University

In his fifth year at Washington State’s helm, Chun has established a track record of advocating for people of color and those in the LGBTQ+ community. He has co-chaired the Pac-12 Conference’s social justice and anti-racism advisory group, served on the athletic department’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council and led the department’s initiative to set DEI goals and track their progress. WSU’s report card on diversity and inclusion provides the department with another method of accountability. Chun’s emphasis on DEI efforts shows up in the Cougars’ hiring as well. Nearly half of new hires (45%) during his tenure have been gender and/or ethnically diverse.
