Happy New Year, Huskies! The legislative session starts on January 10, 2022, and UW Impact is ready. We surveyed our alumni again in late 2021 to discern which higher education issues they cared about most. The answers were both clear and familiar: alums care about access and affordability, maintaining quality and excellence, and expanding high-demand degree opportunities.
Join us for the 8th annual Legislative Preview, taking place virtually on January 6, 2022. The topic? Restoring Public Trust in Higher Education. We have university presidents! We have lawmakers! Best of all, we have nearly 80 of your questions, which have helped us shape the program.
On Jan. 6, 2022, leaders in private and public higher education and state government gathered online for the 8th annual UW Impact Legislative Preview. The event, titled Restoring Public Trust in Higher Education, discussed what can be done to restore public confidence in our colleges and universities.
