Celebration features the outstanding achievements, inspiring stories and academic success of our students. As the UW’s signature event to support diversity, Celebration also raises funds for EOP scholarships and recognizes the Charles E. Odegaard Award recipient. Here we create connections within our community of corporate partners, individuals, philanthropists, sovereign nations and with our students. By celebrating the Odegaard Award recipient, we honor an inspirational community member who is an example to us all.
