Through the Joint Statement of Goals and Policies adopted in May 1977 by the Seattle City Council and the University of Washington Board of Regents, recognition was given to the common interests of working cooperatively to resolve issues of mutual concern. By joint action, a Community Advisory Committee was established including faculty, staff, and students as representatives of the University and representatives selected by the City.
CUCAC assists in the orderly development of the University area through recognizing the need for adequate City service, by assisting in the preservation of positive aspects of the University presence and by minimizing adverse effects of future University programs on the adjacent region. The Committee is to be consulted by both the City and the University throughout the planning process whenever actions are proposed which could materially affect these communities.
CUCAC meets on the second Tuesday of each month unless there are no agenda items. Meetings are held at 7:00 pm at the University Tower.
Information about CUCAC and staff support for the Committee is provided through the University Office of Regional Affairs, Box 351243, (206) 221-2603.
