In March 2012, two dozen civic and business leaders gathered to address the challenges — and opportunities — facing higher education and the University of Washington.
Over the course of a year and a half, this group considered how to create a thriving future for the state of Washington and its residents.
The Washington Futures report captures the committee’s thinking.
It is not a mandate or a specific roadmap — rather, it is intended to generate conversation, spark enthusiasm and promote positive change.
The committee presented the final report to the Board of Regents Sept. 12, 2013.
