UW Impact’s 2018 Legislative Preview: Higher Education and the Rural/Urban Divide

Thurs. Jan. 4, 2018      7–8:30 p.m.

HUB Lyceum

The current political climate highlights the diverse perspectives of people living in rural and urban environments. These differences have an impact on our state, most notably with an historically gridlocked legislature.

A free panel, moderated by Dr. Ed Taylor, vice provost and dean of Undergraduate Academic Affairs, and featuring the Evans School’s Dr. Scott Allard, Rep. J.T. Wilcox (R-Yelm), former Rep. Jessyn Farrell, ’96, (D-Seattle) and a UW student from rural Washington, will explore these differences. The audience will gain a deeper understanding of rural/urban perceptions and relations — and how the UW and other institutions of higher education can play a role in finding common ground.

Admission is free.
