For the third time in program history, the Washington Huskies are the champions of the Pac-12 conference, and UW did not feel like sharing.
A sweep of rival Washington State was the perfect way to cap an incredible 26-2 regular season, with an 18-2 mark in conference play, as the Huskies finished one game ahead of last year’s champion Stanford.
How will we of the early 21th century be remembered? By our technological innovations, social movements and many wars, to be sure. But also by pepper-spraying campus cops, epic fails and Gangnam-style? In the fullness of time, will history remember us for — Grumpy Cat?
A new book by Karine Nahon and Jeff Hemsley of the UW Information School explores this topic.
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.
Research money has become a main source of lifeblood in higher education, especially at science- and technology-focused schools like the University of Washington.

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.
