Robert Walker has been named the associate vice chancellor for auxiliary enterprises at Western Carolina University, replacing Keith Corzine who retired Jan. 1 after more than 34 years at the university.
“I am honored and proud to be selected for this position and to uphold and keep doing the good work we have, and continue to do,” said Walker. “I am lucky to inherit such a great team and we will keep pushing forward.”
Walker has served as the director for auxiliary services at WCU for nearly five years and before that managed auxiliary services at the University of North Carolina Greensboro for a decade.
“My favorite part of auxiliary services is getting to watch students grow in the workplace and figure out what they want to be when they grow up,” Walker said. “The residential advisers are one of the most critical positions on campus and it is great to see these students choosing their paths and helping fellow students along the way.”
Auxiliary services at WCU oversees residential living, campus dining, the bookstore, ID center, the Print Shop and Mailing Services, the Pepsi beverage contract and any other miscellaneous business items that comes with those departments.
