"Non-Essential" Travel to North Carolina and Mississippi Banned

On Tuesday, March 29, 2016, Governor Jay Inslee issued an executive order placing a ban on state-funded travel to North Carolina and reaffirmed that order on April 13, 2017. Although not an executive agency, Western welcomes the opportunity to follow the leadership of Governor Inslee on the matter of state-funded travel to North Carolina. Until future notice, non-essential travel to North Carolina by faculty, staff or students will not be authorized.

On April 5, 2016, Governor Jay Inslee issued a memo to cabinet and small cabinet agencies placing a ban on non-essential state-paid travel to Mississippi.

This application is not retroactive; that is, previous travel authorizations will not be revoked. Exceptions to the WWU ban are not expected and would require approval at the vice presidential level.

Governor Inslee imposed the ban on state-funded travel to North Carolina after the passage of legislation that revokes civil rights protections for the LGBTQ community.
