When Pedro Arellano transferred to the UW from Green River Community College, he planned to major in mathematics. Yet he also craved opportunities for dialogue on social issues.
His first quarter at the UW, he signed up for a course on Latinos in the U.S., followed by a course on Comparative American Ethnic Literature. “From there, my curiosity kept growing,” recalls Arellano.
Chris Petersen, who has built a reputation as an offensive innovator, who carried the Boise State football program to its highest highs, has finally been swayed to take on a new challenge. Today, he has agreed to become head coach at the University of Washington.
“On behalf of the University of Washington and the entire Husky Nation, I am proud to welcome Chris Petersen as our new head football coach,” Washington athletic director Scott Woodward said.
Washington has accepted an invitation to play in the Fight Hunger Bowl. The Huskies (8-4 overall) will take on BYU Dec. 27 at AT&T Park in San Francisco.The game will kick off at 6:30 p.m. PT and air live on ESPN television.
“This year’s matchup will be one of the very best in the history of our game,” said Gary Cavalli, executive director of the Fight Hunger Bowl.
Research money has become a main source of lifeblood in higher education, especially at science- and technology-focused schools like the University of Washington.
As schools pursue this kind of funding, they face a fundamental question: Should universities strive to produce research that has real-world applications or should they focus on basic research?
Washington state residents, policymakers, educators, and medical and public health workers will soon know much more about how the Affordable Care Act has affected them, thanks to a new initiative called UW-SHARE from the UW School of Public Health.
UW-SHARE’s first step is to capture the current, one-time pre-implementation moment using a mail survey of 40,000 households.
