Rep. Pollet's bill to add faculty to UW and WSU Boards of Regents passes House

Wednesday, March 13, 2019

The Washington state House of Representatives just passed 86-12 the bill Gerry Pollet D-46 has been working on with the UW Faculty Senate, SEIU 925, both universities' administrations, AAUP and many faculty to add a nominee of the faculty senates to both Boards of Regents.

Now it will go to the Senate. The bill number is 1079 if you wish to contact Senators in support.

What could be more central to serving the mission of education and research than having a faculty member on the governing boards as an essential element of what is called "shared governance." 
This is long overdue. For many years, there has been a student appointed to the Board... but, not faculty.

The 46th legislative district includes Kenmore, Lake Forest Park, and northeast Seattle.
