Thank you to our state legislators!

On Thursday the Paul G. Allen School was honored to host UW’s annual reception thanking our state legislators for their investments in education.

In the case of the Allen School, recent investments include substantial support for the Bill & Melinda Gates Center – a second building that will double our space when it opens in January – and multiple years of funding for enrollment growth that have more than doubled our degree capacity.

In addition to state legislators and members of the Governor’s staff, attendees included UW’s Board of Regents and academic leadership, Allen School faculty and students, and representatives from Fenologica, Microsoft, Moz, Real, Tableau, Zillow, and the Washington Tech Industry Association who attended to demonstrate the importance to the region’s tech industry of investments in the Allen School.
