Tuition/Diversity Campaign

      UW tuition keeps going up, yet diversity and quality of education go down. Tuition hikes and budget cuts close the UW's door to working-class students, students of color, and first-generation students. The great public University is on a fast track to privatization. SLAC, along with other groups, has been campaigning the Governor, Legislature, Regents, and UW administration to lower tuition, increase diversity, use tax money for education not incarceration, increase taxes on corporations instead of burdening working families, and negotiate fair contracts for UW workers. SLAC and students at other UW campuses organized protests, collected 5,000 signatures, and held a 3-day, statewide hunger strike in the spring of 2005 as part of this struggle.
