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.
UW Impact, along with the UW Alumni Association and UW Bookstore, continued our summer book club program partnership in 2021. This program began four years ago as a way to bring together UW alums from different political and philosophical backgrounds to read common books.
