Roundup: UW, WSU consider new Eastside degrees; bills address student homelessness

UW, WSU consider new degree offerings for Eastside students: Washington State University is exploring a partnership with Bellevue College that would offer four-year degrees to students on an open enrollment basis. Meanwhile, the University of Washington plans to soon begin offering a Redmond- or Bellevue-based master’s degree to students working on social issues.

Private money restores some college classes in prisons: Private groups have started offering college courses in Washington state prisons following a 1995 ban on using taxpayer money for such programs. Supporters say inmates who complete college coursework are less likely to return to the prison system after their release.

Bill would create office for addressing student homelessness (Crosscut): Advocates for homeless students are working on a bill that would create an Office of Homeless Youth Programs within the state Department of Commerce. Sen. David Frockt, D-Seattle, has also introduced a second bill that would require districts with high levels of homeless students to provide extra staff support.
