Dear Evans School Community,

I am proud to share with you exciting news: The Evans School of Public Policy & Governance now ranks second in graduate public affairs programs among public universities nationwide, according to U.S. News & World Report 2020 Best Graduate Schools.

On March 4, as we announced our participation in the Public Affairs Diversity Alliance and offers of admission are extended to the incoming Evans School class for autumn 2019, I wanted to pause to reflect on my own personal journey to increase diversity in public policy graduate education, and how we have made equity and inclusion a priority at Evans.

At long last, today is the day!  The movers are here and our colleagues with Absher Construction have started to open up a few walls to get a better look at what’s inside.

I wanted to note my sincere appreciation on this day to so many who got us to this point, as it represents such an important milestone for our school.  Thank you to our faculty, students, and staff for your patience and flexibility as we pack up Parrington Hall and settle into our new temporary home.  And thank you to our generous donors who have made this all possible.

As faculty and staff are busy packing up their offices, and as students prepare to start winter quarter in our temporary home in Condon Hall, I wanted to remind everyone why we are going through this exciting disruption.  Remember – it is a means to an end!

I’m writing to you today from the east coast, as I travel from Delaware to DC in time to see Professor Justin Marlowe inducted into the National Academy of Public Administration as its newest Academy Fellow

Yesterday, during one of the quarterly meetings for all Evans School staff, the group participated in a quick icebreaker activity.  With a partner who isn’t someone they typically work closely with on a day-to-day basis, staff shared their answers to a variety of questions. One of those questions was this: if there weren’t any constraints on our Parrington remodel project (budget, historical designation, UW space policies, and otherwise), what would you love to include in the remodel.  As you can imagine – the responses were varied and entertaining!

As we get closer to our December move-out date, faculty, staff, and students are also engaging in conversations  regarding the Parrington Hall remodel.  I am grateful for the many items of consideration and feedback we have received thus far from all of these groups – and I encourage you to continue sharing your ideas and thoughts!

Last night, more than 300 Evans School champions gathered on the UW campus to celebrate the future of public service leadership and to support future Evans School students by donating more than $300,000 in student scholarship funds!
