With 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?
Sponsored by the University of Washington’s Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies and the Evans School of Public Affairs, “Losing By Degrees” is an informative, timely presentation and discussion about rising tuition and cuts in public funding at Washington’s public colleges and universities.
Presented by: Marilyn P. Watkins, Ph. D, Economic Opportunity Institute, Gabriel Nishimura, Masters Candidate, UW School of Social Work
