Board of Regents

Public Comment Period

The University of Washington Board of Regents will provide a public comment period at each regular meeting of the Board.

A ten-minute public comment period will be provided at the beginning of each regular meeting of the Board. Speakers will be allowed up to two minutes each for their comments with preference given to those who sign up in advance. For the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Governor’s partial waiver of certain provisions of the Open Public Meetings Act, public commenters must sign up in advance via webform, email, or telephone.

Sign up to provide public comment at the meetings of the Board on Wednesday, February 10, and Thursday, February 11, 2021. Sign up using the Request to Provide Public Comment form available at noon on Friday, February 5, 2021.

Please include:

  • name
  • email address and/or phone number
  • subject of your comments
  • relationship to the University (student, faculty, staff, alumni, other)

Speakers are encouraged to address a topic germane to an issue being discussed at the meeting. Preference will be given to those who sign up in advance. For the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Governor’s partial waiver of certain provisions of the Open Public Meetings Act, public commenters must sign up in advance via webform, email, or telephone.

It is not necessary to sign up to attend the meeting.
