UW President Michael K. Young met with Governor Jay Inslee, Washington’s Top Dawg (’73) in Olympia this week. The two leaders talked about a wide range of important issues facing the state, the University of Washington and Higher Education. Chief among those was that the University of Washington is poised to play a major role in our ongoing economic recovery and growth. President Young was also in Olympia last week for meetings with state lawmakers.
Earlier this week, the Governor gave a shout out to a future member of the Husky family on Twitter:
Congrats to Micheal Bragg on being announced new dean of @uwengineering. Glad to see an aerospace engineer in that posiition.
