Help shape UW's Campus Master Plan

If you'd like to have a hand in determining the future development of the University of Washington campus, come out to the Campus Master Plan public meetings Oct. 14 and 15.

The public is invited to share ideas and comments on the next Campus Master Plan, and to comment on the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that will be prepared to analyze potential environmental impacts of the plan. Your input will play a pivotal role in helping us shape the future of the Seattle Campus.
