Join us for “Losing By Degrees: Rising Costs and Public Disinvestment in Higher Education”

bridges-center-presentation34With public funding for state higher education at a 30-year low, how will tuition hikes affect family economic security, workforce development, and Washington’s long-term business climate? What new sources of public revenue could increase public investment in higher education, to build a more competitive workforce and improve our business climate?

Presented by: Marilyn P. Watkins, Ph. D, Economic Opportunity Institute, Gabriel Nishimura, Masters Candidate, UW School of Social Work
