Join us for “Losing By Degrees: Rising Costs and Public Disinvestment in Higher Education”

bridges-center-presentation34With public funding for state higher education at a 30-year low, how will tuition hikes affect family economic security, workforce development, and Washington’s long-term business climate? What new sources of public revenue could increase public investment in higher education, to build a more competitive workforce and improve our business climate?

Presented by: Marilyn P. Watkins, Ph. D, Economic Opportunity Institute, Gabriel Nishimura, Masters Candidate, UW School of Social Work

Details: Thursday, October 29th, 4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m., University of Washington, Seattle Campus, Parrington Hall Forum (Rm. 309). Download a flyer with all the info here. For more information, contact the Bridges Center at 206-543-7946.
