The University of Washington’s 2019 State Legislative Agenda

External Affairs

Public higher education provides the greatest opportunity for prosperity and well-being for individuals and communities, so it must be both affordable and of the highest quality. At the University of Washington, that belief is at the forefront of all we do.

The Washington State 2019 legislative session begins Jan. 14 and is scheduled to last 100 days to consider biennial operating and capital budgets for the state. During session, the Office of State Relations will work with our campus partners to advance the University of Washington’s legislative priorities. Our 2019 legislative agenda focuses on investments that are critical to our ability to provide both access and excellence to students and communities across the state.
