Western must reflect state's changing demographics, now and in the future

Rep. Jason Overstreet of the 42nd District in Lynden is dead wrong in calling for the resignation of Bruce Shepard, president of Western Washington University. What Dr. Shepard said - what he really said - is exactly what all of us on the campus leadership team have been saying for many years. To continue our success as the state's premier regional university we must make sure that our faculty and student population reflect the population demographics of our state, not just today, but in the years to come.
