Reception to discuss WSU
EVERETT — Washington State University President Elson S. Floyd will host a reception Wednesday to discuss efforts to expand the research university’s presence in the city.
The free event is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. in the ballroom of the Hotel Monte Cristo, 1507 Wall St. in Everett.
A bill moving through the Legislature would put WSU in charge of the University Center of Puget Sound in 2014. Everett Community College now runs the 500-student program on its campus.
Under that legislation, officials at WSU and the community college and others must craft a plan for serving the higher education needs for the region for the foreseeable future. It also requires WSU launch an engineering program at the center in the next couple of years.
