Spring Celebration of Service and Leadership

University of Washington students serve and lead, in on-and off-campus communities, to expand their boundaries, learn from others, and make a tangible difference in the world. All UW students, undergraduate and graduate, are invited to share how they have worked together to transform their campus and communities, to develop compassionate leadership skills, and to learn from each other.

The Spring Celebration of Service and Leadership showcases how students’ academic journeys have influenced who they are as leaders, organizers and change-makers. Join in and celebrate these diverse and inspiring students!

See all the ways #HuskiesServe and #HuskiesLead on Wednesday, May 24, 2017, from 2-6:30 p.m. in the HUB.
