CCC, UWB to hold public meeting

BOTHELL - The public is invited to attend a community briefing on the co-located campus of Cascadia Community College (CCC) and University of Washington, Bothell (UWB).
   The event will be held 10 a.m. to noon on Dec. 5 in room UWB2 003/005.
   Community members will have an opportunity to hear about the successes of these two institutions from the president of Cascadia, Dr. Victoria Muñoz Richart, and the chancellor of UWB, Dr. Warren Buck.
   Students from both schools will speak about their experiences on this brand new campus.
   In addition, the legislative requests from both institutions will be introduced at this meeting. CCC will be asking the Legislature for worker retraining funds to lessen the impact of layoffs, as well as additional funding to allow more students to attend the college.
   UWB is also in need of funding for continued enrollment growth.
   Both institutions will be requesting funding for the construction of a south-access route from Highway. 522.
   This funding is required in order for both institutions to grow to their planned capacity.
