Huskies on the Hill 2015

Join the ASUW Office of Government Relations for Huskies on the Hill 2015!

We will head down to Olympia for the day to meet with legislators and discuss higher education issues that affect you. This is a great opportunity for you to tell politicians your higher education story and how tuition rates affect you. During the day, you will be in a team with a few other students and meet with legislators to lobby for higher education funding.

Check out ASUW’s 2014-2015 Legislative Agenda here to learn more about the issues we will be advocating for.

Transportation, lunch (Chipotle!), and a brief training will be provided.

Different meeting place tonight!

As discussed, tonight we will be meeting in GOWEN 301. There was a scheduling conflict with Paccar, so this week only, we are going back to the senate’s old stomping grounds. For some of our members, this room may be difficult to access. There is an elevator on the ground floor of Paccar which, if taken to the fourth floor, will deposit you immediately next to our room. If there are any problems getting there, please contact me, and I will do my best to get you situated.
Also as discussed, tonight’s meeting will run to 7:30. I hope that we will be able to have an efficient and productive discussion. See you all tonight.

ASUW Honors the Life and Achievements of UWT Chancellor Friedman

The ASUW Senate has passed a commemorative resolution honoring the work of Debra Friedman, a UW alumnus and the visionary chancellor of UW Tacoma. Her work has given UW Tacoma a fantastic gift of vision, identity and momentum and she is a true daughter of the University of Washington. Our thoughts and feelings go to her family, friends and colleagues as we mourn her passing.
