Advisory: March 11 Council Meeting
Council to discuss higher education enrollment and affordability challenges
March 4, 2021
Olympia—On Thursday, March 11, the Washington Student Achievement Council will explore the enrollment and affordability challenges impeding high school students’ pursuit of higher education.
That discussion, as well as a council update on a number of expanding partnerships dedicated to supporting prospective adult students’ return to the classroom, is representative of the council’s continued focus on addressing racial inequities that persist in higher education.
As part of this work, the meeting will include a final review of the council’s 2021 report "Leading for Racial Equity at WSAC." The report provides a series of recommendations on how the council can continue its commitment to addressing inequities in the work ahead.
The March 11 meeting will be the first for incoming member Evangelina Schreeve. Appointed by Governor Inslee, Evangelina will assume the role left vacant by outgoing member Karen Lee. Evangelina serves as the director of STEM education at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in the Tri-Cities region.
The public will have opportunities to comment during the meeting. Those who plan to attend should register on Zoom prior.
All meeting materials will be available online on the day of the meeting.
