Dear Western Students,

We hope this message finds you healthy and safely enjoying the last couple of days of Spring Break.  We know that one of the primary concerns you and your families have is possible adjustments to spring tuition and fees because of the unforeseen adaptions we’ve been forced to make in response to an unprecedented global health crisis. As previously indicated, financial aid disbursements will go forward as scheduled on March 31, and in tandem with that we want to give you and your families some sense of what to expect regarding tuition and fees.

Dear Western Community,

Yesterday’s “stay-at-home” order from Governor Inslee created questions for many employees. We’ve reviewed the order and associated documents, and consulted with our Assistant Attorney Generals and others to ensure that we clearly understand the impact of the order.

As we all prepare ourselves for the new quarter, your colleagues at the Professional Development Program would once again like to play a supportive role in your growth and development. We have a new schedule of professional development offerings. You will note that certain offerings will be unavailable in times of remote work. However, we have worked to provide you with opportunities to learn and develop on the job, to support you and your department or team adapt to our circumstances.

WTA urges bus riders to ride the bus for essential trips only, and to enter and exit the bus at the rear door, unless they need to use the ramp.  

Public Transportation is considered an essential service. While Governor Inslee is asking Washingtonians to limit nearly all trips, there are some—for example those to work (for employees who can’t work from home), to medical appointments, to grocery stores and pharmacies—that people still need to make.

Dear Western Community,

In the midst of all the changes and uncertainty, Spring Break is here. The sunshine, the spring flowers, the amazing sunsets—all of the things we look forward to every year after the long, dark winter are here. I hope that you can find some time this week to just enjoy the familiar rhythm of spring returning.

Dear Western Community,

Western is open and all employees have an obligation to work remotely when possible to help mitigate or slow the spread of COVID-19 and support the safety of those who remain on campus. This is important as we recognize there are a number of functions performed that require employees to be present at the work site in order to continue business operations.
