UW regents sued over ‘sham public process’ in picking school’s president

An advocacy group for government transparency on Tuesday sued the University of Washington Board of Regents, contending the board conducted a “sham public process” and violated the state’s open-meetings law last October by secretly picking the university’s president.


UW regents move dinner meetings for public access

Prompted by a legal challenge into whether its dinner meetings were truly open to the public, the University of Washington Board of Regents will no longer regularly be holding them at the off-campus home of UW President Michael Young, as has been its practice for many years.

Instead, the 10-member board will meet at the University of Washington Club, a nonprofit campus social club.
