Dean Mia Tuan co-authored an op-ed with Ben Danielson from the UW School of Medicine for The Seattle Times titled "A hub of early learning excellence takes shape in the Rainier Valley." In the piece, they discuss the planned Rainier Valley Early Learning Campus and how it will ensure high-quality, affordable and culturally-affirming child care and preschool for children in southeast Seattle, as well as unite high-quality learning for young children alongside a focus on high-quality learning for adults, from UW students to working professionals seeking to enhance their career development. It will also leverage the UW’s expertise in research and dissemination to have a national impact on workforce development.
