This year the University of Washington has increased tuition 20 percent. Out-of-state enrollment targets have been increased to 30 percent of total enrollment because out-of-state students pay three times the in state rate.
These actions show that the institution that should be dedicated to serving in-state students is balancing its budget by raising in-state student costs and limiting in-state student access.
In the meantime the UW has somehow been able to find $185,339 to contribute to Sen. Patty Murray. Heads should roll, and she should give it back.
