Initially accredited in 2005, UWPD has maintained compliance with 373 national standards/best practices, achieved reaccredited status in 2008, and is preparing for a second reaccreditation beginning May 7.

As part of the on-site assessment, members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session May 9 at 3:30 PM. The session will be conducted in the Fishery Sciences Building located at 1122 NE Boat Street. The public can also leave comments by calling 206-543-8702 on May 8 between the hours of 1 PM and 3 PM.
