Western Washington University is proposing amendments to its Washington Administrative Code (WAC) rules. A public hearing will be held October 11, 2022, at 11 a.m. Virtual public hearings necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic have proven effective in allowing greater public access, eliminating the burden of physical travel, and maintaining public safety. Accordingly, a virtual meeting will be held with an optional in-person component. To attend the virtual public hearing, you must register in advance. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the public hearing. To attend in person, email the university rules coordinator for meeting location. The hearing will start at 11 a.m. and will continue until all oral comments are received.
