What We Do

Mission Statement

Our mission is to support the UW and higher education in the state of Washington.

UW Alumni Association—Your Member Dues at Work

When you pay your dues to the UW Alumni Association, you make the conscious choice to stand with us in our mission to support the UW and higher education in the state of Washington. At the UWAA, we put your member dues to good use. Here are a few of the programs you make possible.

Columns and Viewpoint, our award-winning magazines, raise the profile of the UW and generate broad support by giving alumni and donors a window into the UW. They are primarily funded by member dues.

Scholarship Fund-raisers
Dues are invested in innovative programs—like the UW license plate scholarship program—that return the investment many times over.

Tens of thousands of people attended UWAA community events each year. While registration fees and sponsor support cover some of the costs, membership dues help close the gap.

UW Impact
UW Impact is an official UW Alumni Association group that helps people advocate for the UW and higher education in their communities.

Benefits and Student Services
We provide premium benefits for members, like online journal access, and we serve current UW students by helping connect students to alumni who wish to offer career guidance.
