OPBlog: Introduction

Hello! My name is Barbara Reichart and I am the 2018-19 Legislative and Policy Analysis Intern for the Office of Planning & Budgeting (OPB). I am currently a graduate student at the Evans School of Public Policy & Governance seeking a Masters in Public Administration. Prior to joining the University of Washington community, I worked at a trade association focusing on higher education access and financing policy in Washington, DC.

I am excited to join the OPB team and look forward to updating the OPBlog throughout the year with posts related to higher education trends, federal and state legislative issues, and UW-specific policy initiatives.

Please feel free to send any feedback or suggestions for future posts! You can reach me at
