UW in Your Community

Want to find out which Seattle startup was developed at the UW, then transferred to the private sector? Map it at the UW Office of State Relations’ new interactive Web site,

Visitors to the site can type in an address and find out, for example, how many Husky Promise students live in Yakima’s 14th district (105), which elementary school the Burkemobile stops at in Ellensburg, how many WWAMI clinics the UW serves in Spokane, or which local businesses were awarded joint contracts with the UW and more. The site, created by the Office of External Affairs, was designed to help citizens across the state understand the UW’s impact on the region.
