Event Recap: The Center for Women and Democracy: February Food For Thought
On Thursday, February 21, Dr. Walmsley spoke to approximately 40 women as part of an education panel that was organized by the Center for Women and Democracy. Anne Luce spoke about K-12 policy as it relates to the Washington state legislature; Dr. Ana Mari Cauce spoke about state funding issues and the University of Washington; and Dr. Angela Walmsley spoke about graduate programs, the adult learner, and the opening and programs at Northeastern University – Seattle. The panel concluded by taking questions from the audience. Some of the questions/discussion were around teacher training, vocational or professional training, state funding as it splits to K-12, community college, and state colleges needs; and graduated tuition rates dependent on degree. For many, it was their first introduction to Northeastern University – Seattle including co-op; the hybrid model; and programs designed exclusively for working professionals.
