Gregoire signs law; Vancouver gets freshmen

Gov. Christine Gregoire signed into law a historic measure on May 4 calling for the creation of four-year campuses at Washington State University Vancouver and the University of Washington Tacoma.

WSU Tri-Cities also made some gains. It was granted a four-year degree in biotechnology and also may offer undergraduate courses that are not available at the community colleges nearby.

“We’ve had a ‘no vacancy’ sign up at our colleges and universities for too many students for too long,” Gregoire said at the signing ceremony at the UW Tacoma campus.
