Six Presidents: An Unprecedented Conversation on Higher Education Funding in Was
Join us for an unprecedented conversation with all six of Washington state's public university presidents on the risks of continued cuts to higher education. The conversation, which will also include key business leaders, will be moderated by Seattle Times Editorial Page Editor Kate Riley and Times business columnist Jon Talton. For years, Washington's universities have experienced chronic disinvestment by state government. Our state now ranks 48th in per capita enrollment in public baccalaureate programs. These cuts to our universities, say many, are permanently undermining our state economy and killing job creation. Participants include Michael Young (UW), Elson Floyd (WSU), Bruce Shepard (WWU), Les Purce (The Evergreen State College), James Gaudino (Central Washington University), and Rodolfo Arevalo (Eastern Washington University). Presented by the Seattle Times and Town Hall as part of the Town Hall Center for Civic Life. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.
