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.
