The Evans School is saddened by the loss of Evans School Professor and Dean Emeritus Hubert Locke, who passed away Saturday, June 2, 2018.
Parrington Hall, home to the Daniel J. Evans School of Public Policy & Governance, will undergo a major remodel in 2019. To help inspire investment in this important project, we are creating a series of films that illustrate the goals of the campaign and highlight stakeholder voices.

Next week, the second cohort of our International Program in Public Health Leadership (IPPHL) will begin their studies, and I’m so pleased to welcome them to the Evans School community.
This weekend, as thousands took to the street for the March for Our Lives, I felt many emotions: sorrow that young people don’t feel safe in schools, frustration at the current political deadlock that keeps us from making lasting gun reform, and pride that our teenagers are leading the way to better policies and safer communities.
Dear Evans School Community,
“I think it’s really exciting. One could say Oh, the challenges are overwhelming but the students are so exciting, and they have so many new ideas . . . they want so much to make a difference in how people live their lives. It’s a great time to be a dean.”
My good friend and Washington’s former Governor, Chris Gregoire, visited the Evans School this week to guest lecture in our Public Speaking skills workshop class, taught by Acting Assistant Professor Grant Blume.
Following the Diversity Committee’s first meeting of the new academic year last week, I am pleased that we are now able to share the Evans School’s Blueprint for Diversity, 2017-2021 and the results of the 2017 Equity & Inclusion Survey.
