The University of Washington Pact with Students

“The University of Washington educates a diverse student body to become responsible global citizens and future leaders through a challenging learning environment informed by cutting-edge scholarship.” UW Vision and Values

Based on our Vision statement, the University of Washington makes these commitments to our students:

  • First, the quality of the student experience will always be our primary goal.
  • Second, we will work with student leadership to invite and obtain representative input from our students about those decisions that most directly impact them.
  • Third, we will enrich our students learning experience in the classroom, online, in our support centers and through experiential learning and research.
  • Fourth, we will recruit and retain top faculty.
  • Fifth, we will work to contain the overall cost of a degree.
