first_imgHal Dengerink was getting ready to leave his position on the Pullman campus of Washington State University and take over a fledgling branch campus more than 350 miles away.Before he headed for Vancouver, Dengerink had a question for a WSU official: “If this doesn’t work out, can I come back to Pullman?”“He said no,” Dengerink recalled.o What: 2011 First Citizen Award ceremony.o When: 4-6 p.m. Wednesday.o Where: Hilton Vancouver Washington, 301 W. Sixth St.The WSU official had enough confidence that the branch campus would work, Dengerink said, but the message also was meant to motivate. Dengerink and the Vancouver campus would share the same fate.More than 20 years later, WSUV has grown its enrollment and facilities exponentially.It also has advanced its mission, expanding from an upper-division branch campus — enrolling juniors, seniors and graduate students in a limited number of fields — to a university that offers local high school graduates four years of college without leaving town.The WSUV chancellor also has expanded his own role in Southwest Washington in the last 22 years. Since taking over the campus, he has participated in community efforts that range from the Interstate 5 Bridge project to improved care for local hospital patients.last_img read more
