Tayloe Washburn takes college post at new Seattle campus

Puget Sound Business Journal, May 4, 2012

Prominent attorney and civic leader Tayloe Washburn has left the Foster Pepper law firm to head a new Seattle branch of Boston’s Northeastern University.

Northeastern plans to offer graduate classes in Seattle later this year in engineering, energy systems, computer science and other fields — with a mission to pump out talent to feed the region’s cutting-edge industries.

Northeastern received license approval this week from the Washington state Higher Education Coordinating Board to become the state’s first private research university.
