Welcome to the University of Washington
The University of Washington is a dynamic, collegial community in a beautiful Northwest setting. It wins more federal research funds than any other public university in the country, a position it has held every year since 1974. Among all universities, the UW is second only to Johns Hopkins. Much of this research features extraordinary interdisciplinary collaborations focused on big, complex problems, and many UW undergraduates participate.
The UW is a linchpin of our state’s economy and our region’s health care. It is also a place of educational ferment, as we seek to make the most of a diverse student body, new ideas about learning and teaching, and new educational technologies.

Tomorrow’s University Today
President Michael K. Young launched Tomorrow’s University Today, a new initiative that focuses on three key areas:
- Leading change in public higher education
- Turning the UW inside out to apply multidisciplinary expertise to K – 12 education and early learning; sustainability and clean energy; health care and social welfare
- Driving our economic future
The initiative builds on the UW’s long-standing commitment to addressing the world’s most complex challenges.
