Alumni groups from three of the state’s public four-year universities are launching outreach efforts in Olympia this week.
Through social media postings, the three alumni groups (UW Impact, WSU Impact, and Western Advocates) announced they are joining forces for an “Alumni Week of Action.”
Their message? Asking legislators to support state reinvestment in higher education in exchange for a two-year tuition freeze.
The alumni-driven efforts come on the heels of proposals introduced in both the State House and State Senate to address sagging state support of public higher education.
