This week, Washington state’s public university presidents met for a Seattle Town Hall discussion on the risks of continued cuts to higher education. The state now ranks 48th in per capita enrollment in public baccalaureate programs. Some say these cuts are permanently undermining our state economy and killing job creation.
Participants include Michael Young (UW), Elson Floyd (WSU, pictured), Bruce Shepard (WWU), Les Purce (The Evergreen State College), James Gaudino (Central Washington University), and Rodolfo Arevalo (Eastern Washington University). Moderated by Seattle Times Editorial Page Editor Kate Riley.
