During the week of December 17, the Evans School will move to our temporary home, Condon Hall. On Tuesday, members of ESO and our PhD program toured Condon Hall to evaluate and give comments on the spaces available for classrooms, student collaborative space, PhD workstations, common/social space, and more.

The remodel of Parrington Hall is slated as a $20 million project.  Early in 2018, the Washington State Legislature included $10 million in their Capital Budget for the remodel of Parrington Hall.  And for the past two years, Evans School staff, leadership, and volunteers have been hard at work raising the remaining $10 million from individual donors and foundations. 

Now at $18.8 million raised to date, we continue to tell our story to prospective donors about how an investment in Parrington Hall is an investment in the future of public service leadership.
